Client Served

Rating: 1

The Hope House is a great concept, but the majority of the current staff fall extremely short in actually providing the much needed services that are promised to the clients and advertised to the community. The DIRECTOR, COORDINATOR, and CASE MANAGER go out of their way to belittle, berate, humiliate, and dehumanize the clients. All three also participate in gossip with clients regarding other housemates. On SEVERAL different occasions I have witnessed the coordinator withhold physician prescribed medications from clients for reasons as simple as being one minute late to the window, and even the coordinator herself coming in late. This means 'Med time' has come and gone, absolutely none of the clients received there medications, and were consequently told 'too bad'. The hope house is constantly requesting funds from the public to improve programs and toiletries clothing cleaning supllies etc yet these things are never actually bought they are also donated.

Hope House of McAlester is doing a wonderful job outreaching to those women and children who need a little assistance to get back on their feet. The local community supports them by referring clients to them regularly and providing donations whenever possible. Needs vary greatly amoung those who request help, and each individual is treated with dignity and respect. No need is too small for the staff to try to provide. I appreciate the dedication to these clients and have great respect for what they do daily to provide the best for those who need assistance.

Hope House provides a safe, Christian environment for women and children who have no place to go. The Hope House staff has created a home for these women when there was no place and nothing else for them. They help them get back in school, find jobs, counseling, parenting skills and much more. With the support of local organizations and churches each client is given training and direction to take care of themselves. In the current economic situation - life is hard. It is difficult to financially support yourself when anything bad happens. Hope House catches those who fall and get them back on their feet.

Board Member

Hope House provides a Christian opportunity for women and their children to have a safe place to stay while they get their feet back under them. Since becoming a board member, I have seen many women enter the shelter, find employment and to get their lives back on track.

One of my main duties as a board member is to help Hope House of McAlester find the necessary funding. I would like to encourage everyone to pray-fully consider making a donation to Hope House.
