While you are a guest at New Hope Center, we hope to make available to you classes on some Life Skills such as Cooking, Nutrition, and Budgeting to name a few.  We are also working on helping you with your resume and interviewing skills, so you are prepared for the future job you obtain.  We are a faith-based organization and can help you get connected with a local church or a bible study.

Our motto here at New Hope Center is “Help us, Help you, to Help Yourself!”

 

OASIS Family Resource Center                                                                                                                          “This is a 501(c)3, non-profit organization founded in 1984 with the primary purpose of providing shelter to victims of domestic violence and their children. The agency has grown into a comprehensive shelter and counseling program as well as the owner of a resale store, Second Chance. In 1990 OASIS merged with the Family Resource Center, a parenting education and support program serving Wexford and Missaukee Counties. The Family Resource Center provides services such as educational classes and in-help parenting support. In recent years, our services expanded to include counseling for children and sexual assault survivors and support of the effort to end homelessness. We do not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national origin, religion, sex, disability, sexual orientation or age in the delivery of services. No family is turned away for lack of money; all counseling services are free of charge.”
