Programs & Services

Our Programs

House of Hope has specifically designed programs and services to meet the needs of the families and children of Tennessee where there may be gaps so we may provide both direct and in kind support to those in need.

Children & Teens Helped

Safe Haven / Transitional Housing

Our home is available 24/7 with around the clock care of TN children and teens removed from their parents or caregiver. The care, safety and nurturing of these youth is of the utmost priority as we strive to reduce trauma they have endured. After arriving the youth will experience all the comforts of a true home. We provide a comfortable bed, food, clothing, toiletry items and much more.

Youth will stay an undetermined amount of time until foster care is secured or placement in a therapeutic environment for counseling and treatment is found. The department of children’s Services and professional sitters are on-site 24/7 along with House of Hope staff and Volunteers to assist with the emotional and physical needs of each youth.

Food, Clothing, and Household Donations

G.R.A.C.E Program​

The House of Hope Grace Program is for Grandparents and other relatives that find themselves becoming the primary caregiver of children & teens removed from their parents’ custody. With the caregivers often being retired and living on a fixed income it may be difficult to provide the initial items needed when bringing children & teens into their home. We offer specifically designed direct support services as well as in kind support.

We provide food, clothing, diapers, furniture, school supplies and Christmas gifts, and also direct support with unexpected expenses that may stress their monthly budget. We also provide budget counseling and moral support during the process of gaining custody.

Education Advancement

Hope Manning Memorial Scholarship​

A scholarship is given each year in memory of a little girl Hope Manning. Her fate changed the way our county approached child abuse cases and was one of the reasons House of Hope was founded and why the name House of Hope exist. 

A one-thousand-dollar scholarship is given to a graduating senior from the following Tennessee High Schools: Cumberland County High School, Stone Memorial High School and Phoenix High School. The student must prepare an essay noting a hardship they have overcome. After the winners are chosen, they not only will receive a scholarship for the current year but will also receive a scholarship for a second year of college after successful completion of the first.

This scholarship is made possible by House of Hope donors as well as Threads of Hope Thrift Store customers that add their change and donations to our Scholarship jar located at our store.
