Looking for Services?
Our advocacy office exists to connect clients with resources they need to take the next step towards positive life change. Working together with our incredible volunteers, we try hard to provide each individual with personalized support as they overcome unique barriers on their road to victory. A few of these barriers include lack of access to medication, no housing, no phone or cell service, missing birth certificate, mental health barriers, lack of transportation, and many more. Alex Sprinkle, social services director, meets with clients individually to identify specific needs, educate them on available resources and coach them as they navigate their way forward

About the Warming Center
No one wants to be outside in freezing temperatures. The Warming Center is an emergency shelter that opens from 6:00 pm to 7:00 am when night temperatures reach below freezing. Our desire is to cover the basic human needs of safety, food and shelter to allow our guests to focus their energy on their next growth steps. At the warming center, guests enjoy a hot dinner, a safe space, laundry services, showers, community, a warm bed to sleep in and a nice breakfast before they leave in the morning. Through the warming center, we can also connect guests with our services in the advocacy office to help them set goals towards long-term change.
About our Community Outreach
Although the warming center is only open during the winter months, we are committed to serving the community year round. We put on monthly community outreach events at various locations around Branson, including extended stay motels, apartment complexes, and local agencies. At each event we offer hygiene kits without requiring paperwork or any strings attached. We feel this helps build relationship and trust with the individuals we meet and invite them to visit House of Hope to make steps towards long-term change.
