I have spent years working in the Social Services field & think Hope House is a wonderful program for many reasons. First, they are Christian based, so are reaching the girls on spiritual as well as physical & mental levels. Second, their program is more long term than many others out there. There goal isn't just to get teen-moms off the street, but to also train them for a job, so when they graduate they are prepared to function as adults in the world. Third, they have a wonderful staff & group of volunteers that truly care about the teenagers. Also, I feel they are reaching a population in a way no other organization is at this time. I feel the best way for this organization to improve would be to expand so they could increase the number of teen parents they are helping.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
completing the volunteer program, hearing testimonials from the teen moms, and visiting the home itself.
