Mission: Since 1981, Hope House has provided homeless, chemically dependent women with supportive services in a transitional residential setting to help them find employment and maintain recovery so they can become self-sufficient.
Programs: Hope house, inc. Provided 72 homeless, chemically dependent women with supportive services to help them maintain recovery and become self-sufficient. Those supportive services include case management, counseling, peer recovery support, employment training and job placement assistance, financial management, parenting, housing placement and many others. During the most recent fiscal year, 85% of the women who remained in the program at least 60 days discharged with employment in place and 80% moved into permanent housing. The beads of hope employment training program has helped women prepare for jobs as well as earn some income through the sales of their jewelry products.
As a Board member of Hope House, I have gotten to see first hand how they have changed the lives of many chemically dependant women. Their program has helped many women who have hit the lowest point of their lives, usually involving homelessness, jail time or even losing custody of their children. The program gives the residents structure, training, counseling, and strength to turn their lives around. These women have gone on to earn college degrees, own their own homes and most importantly given back to help women who are currently in a situation similar to theirs. They do wonderful work!
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.
