KentHOPE is an association of local non-profits, neighbors, businesses, and churches who have joined together to discuss a cohesive approach to reducing homelessness in Kent. KentHOPE stands for Kent Homelessness Partnership Effort. Our Mission is to build community by providing stable pathways out of homelessness while caring for body, mind, and spirit.
Services we provide
The KentHOPE Day Center serves homeless women and children. Our day center is open 7 days a week, from 7:00am-8:30pm. We offer the following services:
- Resources for housing and recovery
- Employment assistance
- Showers, laundry facilities, restrooms
- 3 substantial, healthy meals served daily
- Evaluation and access to mental health and addiction counseling
- Mentoring and companionship to promote relationship-building
The KentHOPE rotating shelter serves homeless women. With help from our volunteers, we provide transportation to local churches who have committed to hosting homeless women with a safe place to sleep. Overnight shelter beds were generously funded by City of Seattle Human Services Department.
What people are saying
“My choice not to do drugs or alcohol was made much easier because of you. I’m so grateful for this place.”

“Finally we have a facility in Kent where women can go for meals, showers, rest and help. We no longer have to tell women there are no resources for them. You are doing wonderful work and changing lives.”
