House of Hope is a 9-month shelter program for women with children in crisis designed to give a fresh perspective on life and develop job skills that will enable them to be better support their families.
If you or someone you know are in need of help, please don’t hesitate to contact us. The person wishing to become a part of our program must call for a preliminary phone screening with our shelter manager.
A clean, safe shelter for women, and their children (girls of any age and boys 10 years and younger)
Financial management instruction and practice
Personal Biblical counseling and mentoring program
Entry workforce experience and education
We foster attitudes of co-operation and cohesiveness through our “open-air” living arrangement in our shelter. While privacy is afforded, there are no “private rooms.”
Ladies are moved toward learning to deal with a 40-hour work week by applying themselves to required homework assignments and completing a total of 40 service hours per week, including job searching, if they are not employed elsewhere.
We help women receive the financial assistance available to them and their children. Our food pantry provides staples to help stretch the food dollars of these families.
Commit to our 9-month program; we are not a check-in/check-out shelter
If unemployed, they will begin actively, daily seeking a job. Unemployed or part-time working clients are required to complete service hours in the Tender Hearts Thrift Store, which funds our shelter program.
Submit to our no alcohol or drugs policy, on or off campus, for duration of the program. Periodic alcohol and drug testing is required.
