Housing for New Hope opened in 1992 with the Phoenix House, which provides housing and support for eight men making the transition from homelessness to independence.
“The Phoenix House challenged my mind, body, and soul. It was a spiritual awakening. It gave me a guide to find a new way of life.”
- A recent Phoenix House graduate
Opened in 1996, Dove House provides housing and support for eight women making the transition from homelessness to independence.
“I liked the Dove House because it looked like my mom’s home. And the other residents played a big part in my recovery. It was a group effort.”

Transitional housing graduates have their own service and support group, which provides ongoing peer support to one another through life's ongoing challenges and opportunities. They perform regular outreach activities to those still homeless, including presentations at the program sites; monthly outreach to the unsheltered homeless in camps, under bridges, and in the woods; and participation in the CROP Walk. The Alumni are a voice of advocacy for the homeless on Capitol Hill in Washington and at numerous community functions and events.
