The shelter provides 24-hour emergency shelter services, crisis intervention, life skills programs, and counseling services. The House of Faith Ministry, Inc., d/b/a Hudson Valley House of Hope, is passionately committed to providing a “house of hope.” We believe, “There is Hope” for every person.

The facility is designed to provide 14 residential beds. Each family is welcomed into their very own room and all residents share communal bathroom facilities, a family playroom, in-house laundry facilities, and a fully equipped kitchen.
We provide advocacy, public education, children services, crisis hotline, non-residential support, and job skill training. Our services are culturally and group specific. We operate from an understanding of the individual’s diverse background because we recognize that our clients are a reflection of our community. We also provide counseling services, activities, and support groups.
Our primary goal is to offer clients, and their children, a safe but temporary haven in which they can pick up the pieces of their shattered lives. Our secondary goal is to prepare families for independent living, assist in locating permanent housing, and offer numerous on-and-off site support services that will empower survivors and minimize the root causes of domestic abuse. These goals are in place to aid our program in providing survivors with a greater sense of wellbeing as they transition their dreams of safety and independence into reality.
