Our Mission: Inspired by the love of God, the Hope House founders set off to offer hope to hurting people through care and counselling. Our mission is to equip people to withstand the pressure they face in trauma, loss and in the practical demands of daily life.

Hope House Mission Statement

Our approach is person-centred. This means we listen to every client’s experience with empathy and without judgement.

Our Approach

We believe God can make a mess into a message, a test into a testimony, a trial into a triumph and a victim into a victor.
