A Vision for Hope

Bybee Lakes Hope Center (BLHC) transforms the never-occupied, 155,000 square foot Wapato Corrections Facility into a trauma-informed, data-driven transitional housing facility to support Multnomah County community members experiencing homelessness.

The Hope Center will be operated by Oregon-based nonprofit Helping Hands Reentry Outreach Centers, an organization that has been successfully providing transitional housing since 2002. Their organization has grown to include eleven facilities in four counties in Oregon.
