Acres of Hope is a spiritually-based renewal center that provides a safe family environment and a healthy living program for women with children. Our balanced approach sets the foundation of change and breaks the cycle of homelessness.

The Acres of Hope program is one-of-a-kind in the nation for both women and children.  It walks families through the process of change, healing, and growth that they need to completely overcome the cycles of homelessness, trauma, addiction, and poverty.  We do this using a holistic approach that addresses whole-person, whole-family health.  As a result, families graduating Acres of Hope are Mentally Strong, Emotionally Strong, Spiritually Strong, Body Strong, and Relationally Strong.  These ‘5 Strengths’ prepare them for a successful life after Acres of Hope.

Some of the tools we use to build strength in our residents include: a structured daily schedule, monitored sobriety, licensed counseling, intensive case management, health initiatives, life skills training, parenting instruction, recovery groups, relapse prevention counseling, emotional regulation coaching, job training and internship opportunities, as well as recreational activities all in a warm, family environment.  In our children’s program, our littlest residents participate in social emotional learning themes in a calm, nurturing, sensory-first environment.  All of our staff and volunteers are trained to meet the needs of children that have experienced trauma, separation, and adversity.

Our program is based on sound, grace-based biblical principles and the latest in brain science, addiction research and trauma treatment.

Acres of Hope aims to create a foundation of change for both women and children residents. Our balanced approach focuses on the spiritual, emotional, and physical needs of our residents to help them overcome their circumstances and build positive lifelong habits.

To date, we have helped numerous women and children overcome homelessness most of which never have an issue with housing again.


Acres of Hope provides a safe family environment and a healthy living program for women with children that sets the foundation of change and breaks the cycle of homelessness by improving the physical, emotional, social, economic, and spiritual quality of life for homeless women and their children.
