Hope Unlimited was formed in 1984 to provide victim assistance in the rural, southeast Kansas counties of Allen, Anderson, Neosho and Woodson. At that time, the board of directors took victims into their own homes to provide them with a safe place to stay. Since then, Hope Unlimited has grown and now provides a multitude of services to men, women and children who have experienced family violence, sexual assault or sexual abuse.
