Hope. Help. Healing.

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.

Who We Serve

Hope Shores Alliance values inclusiveness and accessibility as a core tenet of service provision. We serve survivors and their support persons regardless of age, gender, gender identity, gender expression, race, creed, national origin, ethnicity, color, ancestry, religion, sex, sexual orientation, language, hearing or Deaf identity, class, economic status, education, immigration status, marital status, physical or mental abilities, HIV status, or substance use.

We serve survivors across the lifespan meaning that we will provide the same level of service and dedication to an individual fleeing an active situation as we would to a person who experienced the trauma 40 years ago.

We believe in communities where ALL have the right to be safe from stalking and sexual, domestic, and dating violence.


Hope Shores Alliance is a community supported human service organization dedicated to assisting victims/survivors and their families in ending domestic and sexual violence and discrimination in their lives through education, systems change, building community partnerships, and ensuring availability and accessibility of support services.

Core Competencies

Core Competencies are a statement about how we communicate with survivors, fellow advocates, community partners, and others when doing advocacy work.

A team of agency staff carefully drafted each competency with the intention of creating a document that articulates our agency’s beliefs, values, goals, and vision for what we believe every survivor should expect to encounter when accessing our services.
