The new Star of Hope campus is a 48-acre site and consists of a main in-take facility and volunteer center seeking to support homeless single women and families; a dining area with full commercial kitchen that doubles as a campus community center; a 300-seat chapel; a robust family counseling center; a collection center and retail shop for clients; and the House of Hope, which offers educational opportunities for the children on campus as well as child care throughout the day. The campus also includes low-income housing, which helps the single women and family clients transition back to independent living and financial stability. At the new campus entry drive and street front, pad sites allow new businesses dedicated to the mission of Star of Hope, such as pediatric clinics, eye care and dental clinics, and tutoring organizations to help prepare adults for job interviews, take root - creating a larger community campus singularly focused on supporting the homelessness needs of the city.
