Hope Shores Alliance is a multi-service agency valuing 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 in an effort to be responsive to partners and allies in many social change movements. At Hope Shores Alliance we believe that everyone has the right to be safe, believed and supported.
Our professional staff supports and advocates alongside survivors and their support persons, employing a trauma-informed framework of service provision with a variety of free and voluntary services and resources that include a 24-hour help and support line, advocacy, counseling, supportive listening, emergency shelter, and long term housing. Hope Shores Alliance serves Alcona, Alpena, Iosco, Montmorency and Presque Isle Counties.
Hope Shores Alliance supports regular staff and volunteer training and works to ensure that opportunities for relevant education and training are available to staff at least annually. 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. Hope Shores Alliance employees have an understanding of the Core Competencies of Advocacy and reference them regularly in their work.
