In 1955, prison parolee Gloria McKee drank caustic cleaning fluid, thinking it was vodka, and nearly died. As a result of that devastating incident Gloria made a vow to devote her life to helping other alcoholic women. House of Hope was born that day.
House of Hope is in its 63rd year of providing a safe, clean and sober, nurturing environment for substance dependent women. Our mission is to help them regain their dignity and integrity by learning to live without alcohol and other drugs. We also seek to help them become financially responsible, reestablish family ties and be reunited with their children when possible.
We are proud of who we are and what we have achieved over the last 60 years. We have served thousands of homeless and underserved women who would otherwise have been delayed or denied access to recovery treatment due to lack of financial resources.
Alcoholism is a progressive disease, often times resulting in permanent mental health problems, severe illness and death. The sooner a woman can get treatment, the better her chances of recovery.
Through our safe, loving and structured program of treatment, House of Hope is an invaluable resource for women suffering the challenges of substance dependence. Our longevity and commitment to our mission allows us to work with an individual and their family to provide affordable, high quality care. Our goal is to never turn away an individual for her inability to pay.
