The House of Hope is an 8 to 10 month faith based program that helps people fight drug and alcohol addictions. The center stays afloat almost entirely from the generosity of their community.
“It’s free. We don’t charge people to stay here for eight to ten months. Everything is ran on donations only” said Susan Rowan, House of Hope resident director.
Luckily for the House of Hope groups like the Brotherhood of the Cross are willing to put on events. Last Saturday, we saw the Hope on Wheels bike ride to help create funds for the center.
“They come once a month, third Saturday of the month and they bring the word of God and they love the ministry so well that they help sponsor this bike rally,” said Rowan.
Hope on Wheels and other events including a pancake breakfast and car washes assist the House of Hope in providing basic needs. “It’s help us pay the electric bill. You know, the heating bill. It helps the maintenance of the building.”
Rowan says she and the rest of the staff could not be more thankful for the help that the house of hope has received from it’s donors.
“There’s not enough words to express how appreciative we are towards the Brotherhood of the Cross and not only that, our outside donators,” Rowan.
Anyone who is interested in helping the House of Hope is asked to subscribe to their newsletter and come out to their events.
The House of Hope will host its next event, a fall yard sale, beginning on September 27th and ending on the 30th.
