Review for Hope House Inc, Fort Wayne, IN, USA

Rating: 4 stars  

I think Hope House has such great results because they educate the women. Many facilities give shelter, but with out giving them the tools how to change there is little results. I was surprised with all the rules, but it help the women with dicipline and direction for when they live on their own. It is important to have the structure that they have not had for a long time in their lives. It teaches them to be responsible for their actions and how to work as a team and care for others. I was pleased to see their faith, friendship, and support of each other.

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

I attened the "graduation" of several of the women who I saw when they 1st entered the house. They were different womenn as they stood with their heads high. They should be very proud of themselves. I pray for continued success for them and all who enter Hope House.

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

Provide more required alternative education such as self esteem, money management, employment direction... I believe some of this is offered, but not all the women take advantage of the extra education.
