For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.

What is Hope House?

The Independent Living Program at Hope House equips homeless youth and youth in foster care ages 16 through 21 years old with the skills and education necessary to become independent, productive adults. The program’s goal is to help at risk youth develop much-needed independent living skills in a Christian nurturing environment that offers stability, consistency and safety. Created for older teens who truly have no other resources, the program provides no-cost:

  • Shelter and basic necessities like food and clothing

  • Medical and dental care

  • Psychological assessments and mental health services

  • Counseling

  • Education assistance

  • Job aptitude evaluation and career planning services

  • Life skills training

  • Recreational opportunities

  • Assistance locating and leasing apartments

  • Case management

Youth can move through the program at their own pace and retain access to counseling and case management services even after exiting Hope House.

To be eligible for Hope House, the youth wanting to participate will need to contact our office to set up an interview with our Case Manager and Director of Social Services.
