At the House of Hope, we celebrate living in freedom after being bound by chains of addiction. Many men have broken free and are living for Christ and learning along the way. Join us in lifting them up and praying for them to wake up and say, ‘YES’ to Christ each and every day.

The House of Hope has so much to be thankful for, here are several praises:

Join us in congratulating Joshua Louiselle on his graduation from the Greater House of Hope recovery program. Joshua’s graduation celebration was held at Spider Lake Church on July 30, 2023. He is working in construction and preparing to move into his own housing very soon.

At our last board meeting we had the opportunity to meet and get updates from two House of Hope program graduates who are now in leadership roles -- Mike Murphy, house lead and Mike Lemmons, workshop lead. Both are seeking the Lord in their walk as sober men and filling their days with positive influences and practices. We are so proud of these men!

Workshop Open House

A ‘reveal celebration’ at the House of Hope’s new trade skills workshop is in the works. Mark your calendar for the workshop open house in October. The date and time will be announced soon. There will be food, fellowship, a blessing over the workshop and recognition of all who donated labor and materials.

Financially Speaking......
