HomeOur Mission StatementWhat we doOur ProgramThe Story Of Hillsboroug House of Hope



The realization of the need for a Christian residential program came from many years spent spiritually counseling in the Hillsborough jail system. The constant "revolving door" syndrome, women being released only to return repeatedly, has emphasized the strong need for an assistance program to help them make a successful transition to a productive life.

Hillsborough House of Hope, working through volunteers and partnering agencies, now offer women leaving the jail a temporary residence where they will receive job placement and training assistance, Bible study, and classes in nutrition, self esteem, women's health issues and parenting.
