I am constantly amazed at the thankfulness of young teen moms who utilize the G.E.D. program offered by Hope House. They come to make a beter life for themselves and their children. They are encouraged by staff and volunteers (and other teen moms like themselves) to complete this first step and to move forward to a career that will enable them to make a meaningful contribution to society while enriching their future. I have seen the change in these young ladies and marvel at their attitue toward life after finding out that there are people out there who genuinely care about them and their children. Hope House is a candle to light the way down a path filled with new possibilites and hope. It has been a joy to serve in this small way to help another on her journey towards success. May God continue to bless you and your efforts, Hope House.
As a bussness owner and communtiy volunteer, I have been invoved with Hope House about 6 years now. Helping teen age mothers and fathers was a big void in our community with most of them having no place to go or support for a positive life style. Hope House is helping our neighborhood with both and many more needs. I have helped by hiring a young mother to help her with financial aid but also to give her some experience in the work inviorment. Hope house is helping our young parents finish their education, providing security, support, positive peirs and more so a place to talk to someone that understands them and their problems.
I heard about Hope House from a friend and wanted to see what it was all about and how we might be able to help as a family. My 2 boys and my husband and I went to have a tour of the facility and were so impressed with the caring and empowering manner in which it was run. The staff were friendly and passionate about their work and the facility was clean and cheerful and had an overall good feel to it. We decided to make a donation so that the girls could share a pizza lunch and to sign up to provide things for the girls when they needed a little extra help. I feel grateful knowing the teen moms and their children are supported in their journey by Hope House and its wonderful staff.
