HOPE HOUSE PG County
Hope House PGC
Hope House The LOHM’s independent living space designed to provide a holistic environment of support services, guidance, and safe housing for women impacted by incarceration and trauma. Hope House is a co-living program developed by The Ladies of Hope Ministries to support justice and trauma-impacted women as they transition to life after prison. Access to safe housing, support services, and a community of care, enables house guests to focus on other areas of their reentry process with support from Housing Coordinators.
Hope House PGC has 4 bedrooms which all have full-size beds. There are 3 full bathrooms and one 1/2 bath. One full bath is located in the attic area and can accommodate 7 women.
Hope House has been dedicated to helping women find meaningful employment, educational opportunities, daily reunification, and healing through trauma-informed care services.
House guests also participate in a Savings Contribution Plan, which encourages contributing to a monthly savings account that can then be utilized towards moving or living expenses once a house guest is ready to move on from Hope House. Hope House guests progress through the four-stage, HOPE framework. The scale addresses healing, employment, education, financial literacy, and securing long-term housing.
