A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another.
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.
The House of Hope encounters many needs to help the children put in our care. We regularly update the needs list depending on the age and number of children we have coming through.

Non Perishable food items
