At Hope Shores Alliance, we work to create a safe environment for survivors to heal and be heard. Our primary goals are to believe, support, and validate survivors of sexual assault, stalking, dating violence, and domestic abuse and do what we can to help ensure their safety. Our services are free, confidential, and voluntary and include 24-hour help and support line, advocacy, counseling, supportive listening, emergency shelter, long term housing, and much more.
We serve both primary (experienced the trauma/abuse themselves) and secondary (know the individual that experienced the trauma/abuse) survivors across the lifespan regardless of gender identity. We recognize that survivors are whole, dynamic, and resourceful human beings that are experts on their own lives and utilize an empowerment- and strengths-based approach.
We are a multi-service agency that values collaboration with survivors and community partners to work towards ending sexual and domestic violence in our communities. We employ a dynamic team of staff and volunteers who share a collective passion for intentional change and growth work rooted in a social justice movement.
At Hope Shores Alliance, we model our services after the Core Competencies of Advocacy and look to this living document to guide our long and short term decisions and goals.
We serve the five counties of Alcona, Alpena, Iosco, Montmorency, and Presque Isle.
