Hope House is a great organization with a high percentage of success. They assist women in recovery with developing personal skills that will help in the community and workplace. Many women in the program "graduate" with a job and an secure place to live.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

I attended a Celebration of Success and heard witness statements from about 10 women who have successfully completed the program. It was very powerful and a great way to see the results of the program.

I lived at Hope House INC back in 1989. They had a good program, though it was lacking in some areas. Hope House has grown in so many ways, for one it is more individualized to the clients needs. The focus originally was strictly 12 Step based. Hope House is still 12 Step based, but it treats the whole person and supports the client in becoming self-sufficient. One thing that hasn't changed, is (even though it is a transitional living facility) that is feels like a home.

My name is Stephanie and I have been addicted to crack cocaine for 20 years. I had never been in trouble with the law before the age of 36 and by the time I was 41, I had been arrested 13 times, sent to prison twice and was facing a third trip. I wrote to the Hope House and my judge and begged for help. The only thing that was going to change would be the date and time upon another release. The Hope House staff helped get me approved to be a resident and I can never thank them enough for saving my life and giving me another chance at how to learn to live life again. It was the HARDEST thing I have ever had to do, but the BEST. I have tools today that I didn't know were out there and I know how to be honest today and talk to people about where I am at on a daily basis. I have been sober for 3 years, with one short slip up, and my life has never been better. Because of the lessons the Hope House taught me, when I slipped, I knew where to go and who to turn to. I will forever be grateful to them and my Judge for believing in me one more time. Life is getting better day by day, one day at a time!

GREAT detail since I was a resident. The program is not easy but worth every minute of it. I learned how to DEAL with situations today instead of running away from them.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Make sure they follow up more with the alumni upon release.
