ANNUAL REPORT 2020-2021


A YEAR OF INNOVATION Dear Friends, As we move in to 2022, still dealing with the pandemic and all of the changes it has brought, we reflect on 2021 as one more challenge that was met and overcome at Hope House. The agency, as a whole has changed the way we serve domestic violence survivors and their children, but we have never stopped providing those services, even in the toughest of times. As we reported last year we have adapted how we “shelter” clients. What we considered a temporary solution to the COVID crisis has proven to be extremely successful and we will continue to use this model going forward. We continue to use our triage approach of providing emergency shelter services at a reduced capacity, continued expansion of our Hotel Placement Program to accommodate more families, and continued growth of our client assistance dollars to allow us to serve more clients in our various housing programs. In April 2021, through funding received from the Marion and Henry Bloch Foundation/H&R Block and KC Regional COVID-19 Response and Recovery Fund, Hope House expanded its housing related programming and implemented an Accelerated Housing Program. The Accelerated Housing Program provides case management and direct financial assistance to survivors to assist them in overcoming their barriers to securing and/or maintaining safe housing and achieving self-sufficiency. Program staff also provided resource referrals and linkages to other Hope House or community supports. In August of 2021, Hope House was re-accredited by the Council on Accreditation (COA) – an international, independent, nonprofit, human service accrediting organization. In fact, Hope House was expedited through the review process as a result of not receiving any out of compliance ratings in any of the fundamental practice standards reviewed by COA. COA accreditation reaffirms that an organization meets the highest national standards of best practice and establishes the organization’s credibility as effective and professionally sound. In addition, it provides assurance to all of our stakeholders that Hope House is delivering needed, high-quality services in our community, conducting its operations successfully, and managing its funds effectively. Achieving COA accreditation means our organization is among the best in the field. We are proud to be a part of this community of excellence. Change can be difficult, but it also provides an opportunity for growth. We’ve seen this firsthand over the past fiscal year, and it is your support that makes all we do possible. Thank you for continuing to give of your time, talent, and treasure to make a difference in the lives of so many.
