 New Hope

New Hope housing program

The Brighter Futures Golf Outing benefits Catholic Charities’ New Hope Apartments program, which transitions families from homelessness to self-sufficiency through rental assistance, intensive case management, counseling, job development and personal financial education – with remarkable success. More than 85 percent of the families that go through the New Hope program stay employed, in school and in stable housing.

Catholic Charities’ New Hope program dramatically changes families’ lives, providing true hope for their future.
