House of Hope of North Carolina is a Christian therapeutic school, home, and counseling center for hurting and vulnerable 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 terms hurting and vulnerable because even though some of the girls at House of Hope may have been in trouble, their actions stem from a deeper hurt that has not healed.
Since 1998, we have served approximately 300 families (around 800 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.
House of Hope Of NC Addresses Hurt Such As:
Loss of a parent
Cutting and self-injury
And other diagnosis
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.
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.
