Our Story

Our mission is to reduce victimization with a safety net of crisis services. We achieve this by meeting the medical, legal, safety, education, and basic needs of individuals and families in a warm, welcoming environment. We help those affected by domestic violence, sexual violence, child abuse, elder abuse, and stalking. Our values encapsulate our vision for those we serve: hope, healing, justice, safety, and empowerment. The Center facilitates a coordinated community response to interpersonal violence that improves outcomes and enables victims to access all the services they need from a single location. Faces maintain robust partnerships with government and community-based agencies leading to 17 strong community partnerships. Co-location means our combined efforts reduce the potential that individuals and families in crisis will miss vital resources. It also reduces the number of times that they must retell their story to minimize further trauma. Faces of Hope provides the following services: Medical services—forensic exams and crisis counseling Legal services–protection orders, custody filings, eviction of abusers Social services—emergency housing assistance, transportation, food, clothing, residential lock changes Education services—support groups, self-defense classes, empowerment classes Center collaboration—partner development, on-going education Support services—safety planning, crisis intervention.
