Reviews for Hope House Inc

Rating: 5 stars  

I have had the pleasure to meet staff and learn about Hope House through my best friend due to their personal family struggles with addiction. If not for Hope House my BFF would not be able to enjoy her children who have been through the program and have become successful young adults. I have had the opportunity to participate in several functions that help to fund this program with great support. Hope House is a top notch organization with a staff that have hearts of GOLD. Thank you for saving my friend and her family from addiction.

This place saved my best friends family! Her mother struggled with addiction for many years...and Hope House brought her out of the darkness. She is now 7 years clean...and is an amazing mother and grandmother! She has also been able to give back to Hope House by working there and volunteering her time. Great place!

I didn't know anything about Hope House until a few years ago. My friends mother was dealing with addiction and it was costing her her family. They first time I saw her after Hope House had helped her get clean I barley recognized her! She was like a new person! My friend has her mother back and her grand kids have their grandma back. Hope House is an amazing place and a great asset to the community.

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

seeing a family brought back together.

The Hope House Saved My Family -- and most importantly my Mother! If she wouldn't have had the Hope House to guide her, direct her and teach her that she can OVERCOME her past obstacles. I know that my children would not have a NANNY SHELLEY! They saved her life and her family! She still has them backing her helping her along with all the others who come through the program. Many programs find it hard to see addicts succeed -- but it's not the program it's the person and I feel like the Hope House gave my MOM hope and she was finally ready to take ahold of it they set all the points to succeed and move forward in front of her. She is a MIRACLE and so is every aspect of the HOPE HOUSE, in my eyes and I'm sure in the eyes of any successful person in recovery who has and is in the continued process of RECOVERY!

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

getting to share my MOM with my KIDS b/c she is ALIVE b/c of the programs and guidance she was given through the HOPE HOUSE!

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

Find more volunteers / funds to keep this LIFE SAVING program growing! Try to show more people the HOPE HOUSE not only saves the RECOVERING individual but their entire family!

Five years ago my mother was incarcerated for meth use. That left me in a very hard situation. I had a 1 year old of my own and a baby on the way! Then on top of that..I had two teenage sisters who came to live with me during my mothers struggles w/ the system and herself. It didnt' take, but a couple months to see "my mom" come back to life..with smiles and confindence in herself. The HOPE HOUSE of Ft. Wayne saved her life..and we couldn't express how much we believe that the HOPE HOUSE saved her life and our family from falling apart. She is our "Miracle Mom" and we "Luv her More and More Every Day!" We luv you Shelley Mitchell (5 years clean - August 23rd, 2010)

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

the last 5 years of my life and my childrens life because if it wasn't for the HOPE HOUSE I wouldn't have a mother and my children wouldn't have a Nanny Shelley:)

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

they saved my mothers life!

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

extremely focused on getting these women back on track and trying their hardest to get them to "want to" live a better life!

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

House and provide the support and backbone for thousands of women in need of mental and physical support to get thru the wrong fork in the road they have taken.

How frequently have you been involved with the organization?

About every week
