We are a 501(c)3 non-profit charity, and your donations are tax-deductible.


As we look back on 2023, we pause and recognize how incredibly grateful we are for our friends and supporters. We could not continue this incredible, life-changing ministry without your prayers, financial gifts, time and talents!

Moving into 2024, we are hopeful that men with life-controlling addictions will continue to come to us to seek help, encouragement and the Lord, including his provision for forgiveness and healing.

Financially Speaking

The residency program is an expensive one to run, however, with God’s provision, we are in good standing to continue His good works. Each month brings its blessings and challenges and we are grateful for your ongoing support. We had many private donations in 2023 and we are also very grateful for the 11+ churches in our community who continue to bless us financially on a regular basis to offset our operating expenses. 

We are also very blessed by the many volunteers who help us put on fundraisers to help sustain us throughout the year.

Phase 3 Housing and Programming 

The House of Hope is a 6-month residency program for men seeking rehabilitation in a Christ-centered ministry. We have learned that additional support for graduates is needed for long-term sobriety. When men graduate from the residency program, they will be able to move into Phase 3 housing for another 3 to 6 months as they transition to independent living. 

During Phase 3, they will receive housing assistance, secure full-time employment, if they haven’t already done so, receive budgeting mentoring, find reliable transportation, and stay connected as they develop supportive relationships.  

We ask for PRAYER as we secure housing, develop Phase 3 programming and raise funds.

Trade Skills Workshop 

Our workshop is teaching men wood working skills that they will take with them to future employers after they graduate. This helps them get jobs and helps us sell products to sustain the ministry. 

Hot sellers…

The workshop is taking orders for corn hole sets, wood boxes and storage sheds. Some people are ordering sheds for garden equipment, motorcycles, 4-wheelers, "She Sheds", “He Sheds", well you get the idea, they can be whatever you need. 

New product development…

A few products are in development and we hope to have them ready for sale in the spring, they are kayak holders and chicken coops. 

Every purchase helps us sustain the ministry, so show your support by shopping at houseofhopehayward/shop or calling 715-525-2954 or emailing [email protected].

We offer handmade wooden products including:

Garden Sheds, American flags, Corn Hole Sets, Birdhouses, Layered Crosses, Key Holder Paddles

Photos and prices of these products are available on our website, using the shopping button below.


Graduations and Baptisms  

We have 3 participants currently and they are doing very well. Joe and Parker have full-time jobs and will graduate at the end of February. Logan is in Phase 1 and will be baptized at the Oaks Church in Drummond on January 21.   

Our graduates will leave spaces for new participants. Please pray for men entering the program, that their hearts are fixed on breaking free from addiction and for their readiness to turn their lives over to our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.

Prayers appreciated.....

We ask for your prayer support as we develop and refine our Strategic Planning Process.

We want to continue to move forward and be good stewards of this ministry God has entrusted us with.
