Emergency Shelter
Access to the emergency shelter facility is 24 hours a day. The emergency shelter is also staffed 24 hours a day and maintains a sophisticated alarm system for security purposes with multiple cameras placed around the building to assure safety.  

It is the policy of Chez Hope to have one family per unit for privacy. However, when emergencies occur, Chez Hope may place a second family in the unit until alternative housing is obtained or alternative emergency shelter is obtained.

Safe Placement

In the event the emergency shelter is at capacity and a sister program is unavailable, Chez Hope will house a survivor and their family in a local motel until alternative shelter can be found. This also includes male survivors.
