Hopebound Ministries address unmet needs of the communities they serve with innovative programs and support services.
We're rooted in the Catholic tradition, and we welcome and serve all people of any background.
The programs nested under the Hopebound Ministries umbrella were founded by Felician Sisters who saw practical opportunities to care for their neighbors, and acted in faith to build spaces of welcome and connection.
