Bremerton is situated along the Kitsap Peninsula in the Puget Sound area in Kitsap County. The town is divided by the Port Washington Narrows. The Puget Sound Naval Shipyard is located here. The fine arts scene is recognized as one of the biggest and most noteworthy in the Northwest Region. The Gold Mountain Golf Complex has been rated as one of the premier public golf courses in the United States. Bremerton is also the home of Olympic College.
Guests enjoy the Kitsap Conference Center, two hotels, fine dining, coffee shops, cafes and the Port of Bremerton Marina in the downtown Harborside area. Downtown features the Arts District, Bremerton Naval Museum, Boardwalk, Harborside Fountain Park and PSNS Memorial Plaza. Manette features even more cafes and shopping. A few blocks north of downtown is the beautiful Evergreen Rotary Park.
Some of the unique challenges in Bremerton revolve around access to housing and healthcare, poverty, and mental health issues. We hope to work with our great community partners to bring hope to local youth.
Our Mission is to bring Hope to local youth.

Like every nonprofit, the bulk of our work is funded by generous individuals through donations. Some people give a single gift, and others prefer to give monthly. All proceeds go towards bringing Hope to local youth.
