Generating Hope
A Place to Go When There's Nowhere Else to Go...

Welcome to Generating Hope’s major project, Noah’s Ark, providing the only emergency overnight shelter and multi-service drop-in center for chronic homeless and individuals/families at risk on the Yakama Indian Reservation and in Yakima’s lower valley.

Our shelter and service center gives people a Beacon of Light where before they found only darkness.

Our shelter is located in the rural community of Wapato, Washington -- about 18 miles south of supportive community-based services located in the city of Yakima.

Noah's Ark offers year-round non-judgmental assistance to homeless, many addicted to drugs and alcohol, and impoverished people who otherwise would have nowhere else to turn because they lack transportation to reach Yakima.

 In one of the poorest regions in the State of Washington, our Ark has provided a sanctuary for ten years dedicated to a sense of dignity and offering hope with services that include a clothing bank, a central location where collaborative community partners can travel to Wapato, clients are served 3 warm meals per day through Project Meal Time and, when needed, emergency overnight shelter for men and women.

We must operate not only during the cold weather months, but throughout the year, offering shelter from the heat of summer, where dehydration can be as much a threat as the freezing cold of winter weather. We support all spirituality – as a foundation for recognizing diversity and instilling caring for one another. Our painted mural is the combined work of homeless artisans and community efforts.  You can see the story of our mural project, reflecting  the spiritual impact of our efforts and the creative synergy of working together.

In 2012, United Way of Central Washington honored Generating Hope’s commitment to homeless and impoverished with a Community Impact Award.

Our goal remains to provide a place of solace and sanctuary: offering nourishment to the soul, body, and mind -- recognizing the dignity of people and their need of community -- dedicated to meeting basic human needs and a path back to their families and communities.
