HOPE FAITH

STAFF.

Hope Faith is the only Homeless Assistance Campus in the Greater Kansas City area. Founded in 2004, Hope Faith’s key principals are to bring humanity back to our homeless guests through mental, emotional, and spiritual assistance. Through the kindness of our staff and volunteers, Hope Faith provides everything from hot meals; hot showers; medical, dental and optical; counseling; clothing; haircuts; transportation; city, state and federal assistance; and mail services (and the list goes on). All of this in a 47,000 square foot building downtown. Read through what each team at Hope Faith accomplishes, and if you feel like joining our family, apply down below!
