HOPE House is a structured nine to twenty-four month program at an eleven bed congregate living site for women. Women participate in on-site therapeutic programming addressing substance addictions and mental illness, as well as, life skills education, group therapy, parenting, vocational training, holistic health services and community activities. All services are aimed at helping clients move toward self–sufficiency. Program rules and a graduated, goal driven level system create close supervision and structure early in the program, with increasing independence as successful participation continues.
In order to qualify for the HOPE House program women must meet the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development’s definition of homelessness. Women must also have had at least one episode of incarceration during their lifetime. Additionally, women must have a co-occurring disorder.
