About Us

House of Hope is a Christian therapeutic school, home, and counseling center for hurting and troubled girls, ages 12-17 and their families. When there is a hurting teenage girl in a family, the entire family is affected and the entire family needs help. 


We use the term hurting and troubled because the girls at House of Hope may have been in trouble (with the law, their parents, or their peers) but their actions stem from a deeper hurt that has not healed.

Since 1998, we have served approximately 253 families (around 715 people including girls, parents, step-parents, grandparents, and siblings) within a 60-mile radius of Clayton. We are able to serve 8 families at a time with our residential program and up to 20 families receiving non-residential services. Our goal is to help heal each family member and bring reconciliation to the family as a whole. 

Sexual Abuse

Physical Abuse

Emotional Abuse


Loss of a parent



Self Esteem

And other diagnosis

House of Hope Of NC

addresses such hurts as:

Parent Involvement

Parents are required to spend time with their daughter on approved weekly visits/passes for every program phase. Throughout the phases, both parents and teenager are involved in weekly counseling. Visitation and privileges are gradually increased so that we are consistently working toward our goal of reconciling the family.

We believe in "the trade" at House of Hope. Watch and find out what we mean.

But there IS Hope...

The Spirit of the Sovereign Lord is on me, because the Lord has anointed me to proclaim good news to the poor. He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim freedom for the captives and release from darkness for the prisoners, to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor and the day of vengeance of our God, to comfort all who mourn, and provide for those who grieve in Zion, bestow on them a crown of beauty instead of ashes, the oil of joy instead of mourning, and a garment of praise instead of a spirit of despair. They will be called oaks of righteousness, a planting of the Lord for the display of his splendor. Isaiah 61:1-3.
