Smiles for Hope

Hope House was fortunate enough to again be selected to receive support from Dr. Andrew Allgood’s office through Smiles for Hope! The fundraising event ran from March of 2017 until June 1, 2017. It’s simple, you whiten your teeth, and a portion of the proceeds for the procedure go to support Hope House’s Therapeutic Childcare Center and Family Services!

The Therapeutic Childcare program is not simply a day care center; it is a curriculum that addresses all major issues challenging these children (i.e., mental, emotional, physical and social development) as a consequence of their parents suffering from addiction to alcohol or drugs.  It is designed to break the cycles of addiction and poverty.

  Our core services include:

+Disability screenings

+After-school tutoring

+School-readiness skills

+Field trips & extracurricular activities

+ Reunification and bonding assistance

+Substance abuse prevention services
