House of Hope
A Safe Haven For Abandoned Girls
House of Hope is a home for up to 12 girls and exists to help restore the family structure that girls have lost as a result of being abandoned or abused. These brave girls bond together to form a new family unit under the supervision of 2-3 “Tias” (House Moms).
Much like a family unit, the girls eat meals together, complete assigned chores, and spend time studying the Bible in order to grow spiritually. Because the House of Hope exists, girls can begin to heal and focus on their futures, as they are loved and nurtured in a safe, stable home environment.
Meeting An Immediate Need
House of Hope opened its doors in 2015 in response to a desperate need for abandoned and abused girls to experience family, love, and safety.
When the first 2nd Mile Education Center opened, we began to see many girls who were being abused, neglected, and even abandoned. We tried to help all that we could, whether it was connecting girls with other family members, helping a home financially, or offering counseling.
All of those stories were compelling us to do more to help, especially for girls who are often the target of sexual abuse of their family members. We felt God clearly telling us to do more, to build a home for girls seeking shelter from abuse and abandonment.
Growing Over The Years
When House of Hope first opened, we experienced the expected growing pains from Tias coming and going to girls struggling to cope with the trauma they experienced. But we persevered and with God’s help were able to add three incredible Tias to build a home for 12 girls. We have since brought in a psychologist to work with the girls to heal their trauma and learn how to create healthy life habits.
Today, the girls at House of Hope are mature, full of grace, and show a family’s love and bond with each other and their Tias.
Sponsor the Family Through House Of Hope
Our family sponsorship program helps fund the daily needs of the girls living at House of Hope, and reinforces our efforts to create a family-oriented environment. Restoring a sense of family to these children gives them the strength and support to concentrate on their education and better equips them to break the cycle of poverty and achieve their dreams.
