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.
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.

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.

I have worked for HOH since 2009 and I work here for two reasons: as a way to give back for all they did for us when we needed HOPE and I felt called to work in ministry. I feel I bring a unique perspective to the ministry. My journey with HOH began as a client in the out-patient then residential program prior to working for HOH. This allows me to speak to prospective clients with a personal level of my experience. I was born in Woodstock, Canada, lived in Guam for a period of time, and I love Crossfit and am a Masters Champion.

I started at House of Hope in 2017 and what I love about this program is being able to see God not only work in the hearts of our girls, but also their families! I love being able to work with strong women who are all working towards the same goal of reconciliation. I love to practice yoga, watch practically anything on Bravo, and spend time with my husband, daughter, and German Shorthaired Pointer, Wilbur!
I have been working at House of Hope since 2012 and I love to work alongside families seeking healing and restoration through Christ. I have two dogs and in my spare time I enjoy roasting my own coffee beans!

I came to know House of Hope as an intern in 2016. When my internship ended, I remained in contact as a part of the prayer team. I considered it an honor when I was asked to return to House of Hope in January of 2022 to be their parent and family counselor and to see individual clients. I have felt the call to minister to families and to see relationships restored and renewwed due to my personal life journey as a parent in a blended family. In my free time I enjoy cooking for family get-togethers, gardening, playing ball with my cat, loving on my dog, and exploring new places.

I started at House of Hope in 2007 and spent almost 5 years as house staff before becoming the school supervisor. When I started as a house staff, I wanted to use my past experiences and heartaches to relate to the girls and help them through their difficult journey. While that is still the case, I continue to work here because I love the House of Hope family, and working here challenges me to always work on being a better version of myself. I love CrossFit, drinking coffee, watching football, and playing outside with my family which includes my awesome husband, two hilarious kids, and one crazy dog.

I am excited to be working with the girls. I am happy to start mentoring and guiding them through their time at House of Hope. Being a light of Jesu through the care I can provide to these girls will hopefully leave a lasting impact on their lives.
I began working at House of Hope in 2014, as a house staff for a little over 5 years. Now, it is 2022, I am back in a new role and couldn't be more honored to work alongside such an amazing team. My life would look a lot different if it wasn't for God's' redemption, love, and grace. Experiencing God in such a way has stirred my desire to see those who long for more, for those who don't know what to do next, or even feel lost to walk in the healing and freedom that God has for them. It has been a blessing to watch many families grow from the time they enter the program to well after graduation, and I look forward to seeing many more in the future as we continue to partner with what God is doing.
I work at House of Hope because I am passionate about mentoring girls and seeing them come to know Christ and their identity in Him. I have known God as a healer and restorer over my own life and brokenness so I love walking alongside others and seeing Him do that in them as well. Some of my favorite things are cats, coffee, cooking, and dancing.
