Good-bye, Jim and Shelle!!
So over Christmas we lost our cooks as well as Sarah. It was too much to write in one week, so I decided to wait until now. Jim and Shelle joined us last year and were amazing cooks to our group of kids and staff. They shared their love through their food, stood up for... Read More
So today we said goodbye to a girls’ dorm staff, Sarah Roberts. She is a well-loved face around the dorm, her smile and encouragement have meant so much to both the girls and the other staff. Today the girls were sad, many of them told me how much they would miss her and that she... Read More
Thank you to all who make this possible. Every year on Christmas morning, a local family comes and helps out, handing out presents, reading a story, and being Santa for the kids. It’s an amazing blessing and gives staff a much-needed break. Plus, the kids feel extra cared for because someone outside of Hope House... Read More
Last Saturday, we had a harvest party here! Planned by our amazing girl’s staff, the kids had so much fun!
This August, we bid good-bye to one of the most beautiful families on our campus, the Gerlachs. Jeremy worked in the dorm and his wife stayed at home with their four young children.

Hope House Camping 2018
Camping during the summer has been a long-running tradition here at Hope House. Every year (except when it’s been impossible), Hope House takes some time to make a long drive, breathe in nature, and cook out of massive, old, heavy canvas tents. This year we were blessed with a huge new moving van to make... Read More

Wow! On Bicycles for Two Days for Hope House

They left this morning and will meet a group of us at the Capitol building on Saturday morning. These college students are part of Delta Sigma Phi at University of... Read More
