I love the house because there is plenty of laughter and freedom to be myself.

I feel that I am coming closer to God and having the opportunity to learn more about the bible and who Jesus is. Being part of the home and the culture that is being established has given me more motivation to get out into the community and help with different projects.

It can also be challenging at times, and I am finally starting to deal with and face my fears and anxieties through the support offered. It’s an honest house as the culture to speak openly and honestly has been embedded from the start with both occupants. We have recently been receiving gifts from people that will help us learn more and experiment with the different methods of cooking.

The little gifts are just as important as the bigger gifts, and we have been really impacted by people’s generosity and just the fact that it shows how much people genuinely care about us.

Joel’s Story*


We asked Joel, one of our previous residents what he thought of Homes of Hope:

“Homes of Hope is a Christian home that offers something unique and priceless to the individual that has come from a broken home, drug dependence and the person who society tends to view with disdain.

Their ability which is God given provides a foundation of love and support, which enables people to value themselves and recognise their worth as a human being. This opportunity is rare in today’s society and should be encouraged and supported as the way forward in healing broken lives.”
