Our Mission

 The spirit of Essence of Hope is the heartfelt obligation to come to the aid of men and women whose lives have been adversely affected by homelessness and  unemployment.  We provide supportive services to individuals with the desire to overcome life challenges. Our support, education, and resources, strengthen our clients mind, body and spirit to become productive members of society. 

THE LATE Hilda E. Johnson (1951-2018), Founder

We recognize your hard and tireless work in creating this beautiful organization. Your vision to ensure everyone you encountered  had a roof over their head and food to eat has paved the way for us to continue your work in providing  a safe place for others to call home while overcoming life challenges.


We will continue to serve the homeless and feed the hungry as you have laid the foundation and example that we must be our brother's keeper. Through multiple bouts with cancer you never complained, just continued to serve and we will do the same.


On behalf of every person you feed, every person you housed, and every person you helped recover from addiction we say THANK YOU!
