Feed Me Hope Culinary School gives homeless and formerly incarcerated individuals the opportunity to transform their lives through culinary training, life coaching, and job placement.

At the Hope Center we have a safe space where approximately 70 women can rest every night. We provide our female guests three meals a day, laundry and shower services, case management and spiritual care.
Here guests can receive a hot drink and pastry as they wait to receive clothing and showers. While guests shower they can have their cold, wet clothes washed in our laundry room. This area is also where guests receive their mail.
Neighboring the Hope Center is an 18 unit apartment complex we like to call our Safe Place of Healing. The apartments are available to students in our program and to women who are struggling with addiction or coming out of abusive situations and/or human trafficking.
