Programs & Services
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
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.
The 2023 House of Hope Angel Tree Wrapping will be held on Monday December 11th & Tuesday December 12th from 9:00 am to Noon and 5:00pm to 8:00pm in Crossville, TN.

Snacks will be provided for the morning shift and a light dinner for the evening shift. Please specify date and time and number in your party, and also provide your phone number and email.
