Mobile Hope

Grant Recipient 2022

Mobile Hope is dedicated to empowering homeless and at-risk youth up to the age of 24, guiding them towards self-sufficiency and improved well-being. With the invaluable support from the Virts-Miller Foundation, we have been able to make a significant impact on the lives of these young individuals. Over the past year, we successfully served more than 500 unduplicated youth, providing them with comprehensive and tailored support designed to foster stability and growth. 

Our approach involves intensive case management, which is the backbone of our support system. It is complemented by a range of critical services, including the provision of food, clothing, and emergency shelter. Furthermore, we offer mentorship and transitional housing, which are crucial for the youths’ journey towards independence. Our skilled trade apprenticeships and life skills training equip them with the practical knowledge and abilities they need to thrive in the workforce. 

In addition to these tangible resources, we provide referrals for specialized care to address individual needs, ensuring that each youth receives holistic support. Perhaps most importantly, we strive to instill a sense of worthiness and belonging through fostering connections and nurturing a supportive community environment. 

The outcomes speak for themselves: last year, 50% of the youth engaged in our programs achieved self-sufficiency, and an impressive 95% reported an improvement in their overall well-being. These statistics are a testament to the efficacy of our programs and the pivotal role of the support we receive from the Virts-Miller Foundation. 

We are profoundly grateful for the Virts-Miller Foundation’s partnership, which has been instrumental in transforming the lives of numerous youth. Thanks to their support, we are not only helping individuals but also strengthening the fabric of our community. As we look forward, we are committed to continuing this vital work, expanding our reach, and deepening our impact on the lives of homeless and at-risk youth.
