 House of Hope programs and services

A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another.

— John 13:34

More than just a House.

The House of Hope is more than just a 24/7 emergency shelter for children removed from the home due to drug endangerment, abuse  or neglect.  We take the cue from the Department of Children's Services and Law Enforcement to find needs and fill them. We have multiple programs and services available to children and families and here we educate and report on the progress of those services.
