About the New Hope Community Center

For decades, the New Hope Community Center (“New Hope”) has been a pillar for people experiencing homelessness in Lansing. At the request of the community, Holy Cross Services assumed operations of the facility in 2018. Today, New Hope is one of the region’s largest homeless shelters and is the area’s only “low-barrier” facility – meaning we eliminate as many barriers as we can to ensure all neighbors have access to emergency shelter.

Every year, New Hope needs nearly $500,000 in donations to keep the shelter operational. With these funds, New Hope is able to keep families together, offer emergency care and nourishment for children, adults, and veterans experiencing homelessness, and help our un-housed neighbors find permanent housing. Through the 2023 Homeless No More event, New Hope hopes to raise $400,000 toward its annual fundraising target.

There are several programs that operate within the New Hope Community Center, each serving the greater Lansing community:

A Note from Our Homeless No More Committee Chair

As I reflect on the past years of chairing the Homeless No More Committee, I am in awe of the support shown to the New Hope Community Center by our Lansing Community. Holy Cross Services celebrates its 75th Anniversary in 2023 and Homeless No More is entering its 12th year. During these years, your support and commitment to the homeless families we serve has been unwavering, helping thousands of individuals. I look forward to your continued support for this event that celebrates the generosity of our community. If there is one thing I have learned is that our community always comes together to make a difference in the lives of those we are serving, and for that we are all grateful. Thank you to all who have been steadfast in your support and thank you to those of you who are joining us for the first time. I look forward to you joining me as we celebrate 75 Years of Heart…Growing Hope!

With Sincere Appreciation,
John Pence
Chair, Homeless No More Committee 2023
