It’s hard to believe that Hope House is celebrating its Sweet 16! What an incredible journey, from the early days when our Residential Program welcomed our first two teen moms, to the soon-to-be-open Resource Center, where 450 teen moms a year will come to earn their GED, receive help with college and career, attend parenting and healthy relationship classes, and have access to quality childcare for their little ones while they work toward self-sufficiency.

In 16 years, we have watched our girls become medical and legal professionals, teachers, and business owners. They have married, bought their first homes, and become volunteers and monthly donors to Hope House. Our first Hope House baby, Sarah, recently turned 16!

Our programs are indeed amazing, but transformation doesn’t happen in a program. It happens in relationship with those who believe in you even when you don’t believe in yourself… who see you as God sees you, when you can’t see that for yourself. Our teen moms have been scarred by childhood trauma and left feeling completely alone. At Hope House they find hope, acceptance and relationship with our staff, volunteers, each other, and you – our champions. That’s transformational. That’s family.

In another 16 years, the cycle of poverty will truly have been broken – and the Hope House family will be celebrating a generation of Hope House children as they walk in their own high school graduation ceremonies!

Thank you for helping us change the future for two generations!
