Hope Haven is a transition home for young women in distress who lack the emotional, vocational, and financial resources needed to successfully launch their lives as adults. The home provides a haven for girls who are leaving state orphanages, need relief from difficult family situations, or for other reasons need a strong framework of support at this stage of their lives.
Using a holistic family model, we address their social, educational, vocational, and medical needs so that they can find life-changing hope and healing. Our goal is to inspire and empower them to overcome their circumstances, take responsibility for their lives, and become contributing members of society.
Living together with the staff, they receive one-on-one attention as they participate in household chores, income generation projects, and community service activities. They learn basic life skills about home management, personal health, and self-government.
Based on their goals and abilities, we help them to find and succeed in part-time jobs or to pursue educational opportunities. We partner with local businesses to provide internships for on-the-job training. We also promote opportunities to spend time with volunteers who teach and mentor the girls.
