About Us

Purpose & Programs


Shelter of Hope serves the FIVCO Region of Boyd, Carter, Elliott, Greenup, and Lawrence Counties by providing emergency, temporary housing with supportive services for individuals, families, and veterans who are homeless or at-risk of becoming homeless, and for whom no help is available from existing community resources. 

Provisions are made without discrimination regardless of age, race, color, creed, religion, sex, handicap, national origin, familial status, marital status, sexual orientation, or gender identity.



Our primary goal is to transition guests from emergency, temporary housing and supportive services towards permanent housing and self-sufficiency. We continue to increase services to meet the rising demand for affordable low-income housing and to promote community involvement and support through homelessness awareness and education.


  • TEMPORARY EMERGENCY HOUSING includes 10 fully furnished 1 & 2 bedroom apartments. Guests receive assistance with food from our pantry, household furnishings and supplies, and personal hygiene items.

  • HOME TBRA (Tenant-Based Rental Assistance) supplements a household’s rent until a HUD Housing Choice Voucher is approved.

  • RAPID RE-HOUSING offers assistance with locating housing, security and utility deposits, and rent

  • CoC (Continuum of Care) refers to the comprehensive approach of addressing homelessness by providing a continuum of housing programs and services including: outreach, intake, and assessment; emergency shelter services; transitional housing services; and permanent supportive housing for people with disabilities.


Referral Process 

For a homeless person to receive assistance from Shelter of Hope, they must first go to CAReS in The Neighborhood. There the individual or family will be entered into the Homeless Management Information System (HMIS). Applicants will then be placed on a prioritization list according to their assessment. There are no exceptions to this process, which helps to eliminate the duplication of services.
