Habitat & Hope Village


Our mission is to provide transitional housing in the Salem area for people without shelter, whoever they are and wherever they come from. 


We see each individual as a spiritual person of worth and dignity and worthy of assistance in their life’s journey.


Our vision is to see individuals and families set free from homelessness, to become physically and spiritually healthy, and educationally equipped to participate in society and sustain permanent housing. 


We seek to help those who have been abused and neglected to find a better life.

Formally established in 2019, Habitat & Hope Village Inc. is a community based organization established by a group of members of the Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Salem in response to the growing crisis of homelessness in Salem, Oregon.


The Board of Directors and the Advisory Council of Habitat & Hope Village Inc. in partnership with the members and leadership of the Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Salem, area resident associations, local elected officials, and regional social service organizations, has been working to reduce the scale and scope of homelessness in the city of Salem, Oregon.


HHV has created a manual for homelessness resources in Oregon and Washington. Thirty two people representing twenty two different programs from Eugene, Salem, Carlton, Clackamas, Portland, and Olympia Washington were interviewed.


The programs included both direct service and those providing supporting services. Interviews explored all aspects of the programs, including planning and design, facility design, program operation, client identification & selection, case management, administrative operations, and finance.


Habitat & Hope has used this information to develop ‘best practices’ for program management, operations, facilities design and ongoing property maintenance.
