We are happy to announce that Allysa has made it to the Home Phase of our program!
Allysa had a tough childhood, burdened with neglect and abandonment. Her grandmother and her aunt were struggling to get Allysa on track when they reached out to House of Hope for help. Allysa and her family committed to change and restoration and, after 22 months of intense work, Allysa is now home with her family and back to school!
“The definition of the word rejection is to discard or throw out as worthless; useless; cast off or out. I felt rejected by so many people before I came to House of Hope, from the kids in school to my own parents. I have learned that when the whole world turns on you, God never will. For the past 22 months, I have been shown love, grace, and mercy even when I didn’t deserve it. – Allysa
In the final phase of House of Hope’s program, residents leave our residential facility and return to their family to complete the Home Phase. By building them up and teaching them healthy emotional, social, mental, physical, and spiritual skills, God can restore hope and help them reclaim their life! No one has to be a slave to their past. The healing love of God has freed us all and in the Home Phase, the girls get the chance to put their new skills and their new sense of identity to the test.
In the Home Phase, our girls continue individual and family counseling as they work to return to their new normal. As they transition to their outside support system, they attend youth group regularly, attend church with their families, and return to school.
While often difficult in the beginning, our girls and their families are equipped with months of parenting classes, individual and family counseling, scriptural knowledge, and family structure guidance. We’re here to hold their hands and guide them as they complete the program TOGETHER!
We are so proud of Allysa, her aunt, and her grandmother for committing to changing their story.
We are thankful for all of the support that we receive for this kind of transformation to happen.
