The objectives of the ROPE Center are to 1) provide all immediate essential needs such as food, clothing, and shelter; 2) provide the education, resources and aid needed to become self-sufficient, and 3) reduce the overall homeless population in the area. Not only do we provide immediate relief to the homeless, but we provide a path to rehabilitation that leads to long-term self-sufficiency. Unlike other homeless shelters, the ROPE Center is run more like a camp. Men and women sleep in separate dorms, and everyone is required to help out with a minimum of ten hours of chores each week. There is also a rigorous intake process which includes background checks, drug testing, needs assessments, and goal-setting exercises. It is our desire to make this chapter of the residents’ lives as honorable and uplifting as possible. During their stay at the ROPE Center, residents not only receive essential services such as food, clothing, and shelter, but also the tools they need to become self-sufficient. These tools include job training and assistance applying for food stamps, unemployment, disability, VA benefits, etc. The ROPE Center strives to give residents all the tools and assistance they need to regain not only their independence, but their lives.  


Helpful Definitions For The Rope Center Hudson:
Transitional housing is affordable supportive housing designed to provide housing and appropriate support services to persons who are homeless or who are close to homelessness. The transition is to help them be more self sufficient to move towards independent living on their own. Transitional housing locations are oftentimes called Halfway Houses. The naming of the two (Halfway House OR Transitional House) is oftentimes interchangeable.

Many Transitional Housing programs are subsidized and are income based. Income based transitional housing generally charges 30% of your income for rent when you do have income. Contact the transitional housing facility to see if this applies.

Services provided at transitional housing facilities varies from substance abuse treatment, to psychological assistance, job training, domestic violence assistance, etc. The assistance provided varies, but it is generally affordable and low cost housing. Read the descriptions of each of the transitional living locations for more detailed information.
