IMPORTANT INFORMATION


please read

While services (counseling, transportation, etc.) are provided at no cost to participants, individuals that participate in Hope House’s residential and/or intensive outpatient program(s) will have to pay up to 30% of their income (from employment, social security income, etc.)  to cover rental expenses while living on campus. Participants are also responsible for the cost of their medications and to use the laundry facilities on site. 

If participants are truly indigent, payment arrangements can be made to cover rental expenses at a later date, i.e. back rent, which requires a minimum of 10% of future income to be paid monthly to cover rental expenses. A $200 deposit is required prior to the renting of an apartment. Rents can be paid with check or money order with the participant’s name in the memo line. 


campus safety

For the safety of our families and our campus, we ask that new participants have one person to assist with their move in. Items that are dropped off and moved in can be brought to the administrative office for staff to assist with the moving process.


                                                                              Hope House is a certified THOR intensive recovery residence.
