Faces of Hope - Meridian is located at 1850 S. Eagle Rd, Suite 100, Meridian, ID 83642. Our Boise location is in the process of transitioning and will be open soon.
Our Mission
Faces of Hope’s mission is to reduce victimization with a safety net of crisis services.

We achieve this by meeting the mental health, legal, safety, education, and basic needs of individuals and families in a warm and welcoming environment. Specifically, we help those affected by domestic violence, sexual assault, child abuse, elder abuse, stalking, and human trafficking.

Our values encapsulate our vision for those that we serve: Hope, healing, justice, safety, and empowerment.

Faces of Hope works with community partners to facilitate a coordinated community response to interpersonal violence that improves outcomes and enables victims to access all the services they need quickly. This requires robust partnerships with government and community-based agencies. Our combined efforts reduce the potential that individuals and families in crisis will miss vital resources. Ultimately, these partnerships foster a heightened community vigilance that comes from partners looking for innovations through the same lens; rapid learning that comes from continuous feedback; and an immediacy of action from a unified and simultaneous response.
