Today, under the direction of Sr. Margaret Leonard, Project Hope is a leader not only in efforts to end family homelessness, but to prevent it in the first place with a mission of partnering with families to move up and out of poverty. The multi-service agency provides low-income women with children access to education, jobs, housing and emergency services; fosters their personal transformation; and works for broader systems change. Project Hope's recently completed headquarters on Dudley Street is the new center for adult education, workforce development and housing services for the community. In addition to its new site, its original Magnolia Street facility, just a few blocks away, remains home to the family shelter, child care center and food pantry.
