Homes of Hope

Providing children and youth environments
in which to live, heal, learn, and grow.

Psalm 27:5 “For in the day of trouble he will keep me safe in his dwelling; he will hide me in the shelter of his sacred tent and set me high upon a rock.”

We strive to provide a loving environment where each child or youth has the opportunity to develop their God-given talents and mature into productive and responsible individuals. Our nurturing and caring staff have the experience and knowledge to care for children experiencing trauma as well as the grit and grace to help chart a new path for families in crisis.

We directly care for a wide range of individuals in our residential homes, including babies, children, youth, teen mothers, college students and families. Each home is tailored to the specific needs of each group in our care, offering a safe and stable home setting where those we care for can connect with peers in similar situations. It’s from these locations that we go to work each day, bringing about healing, growth and development through mentoring, accountability and spiritual care.
