Meet Our Residents

Founded in 1991, and serving people living with HIV since 1993, Hope House has assisted over 86 persons living with HIV from all walks of life.


I came to Hope House in 2018 with complicated health issues. In addition to HIV, I am paraplegic, diabetic, and am a traumatic brain injury survivor. In 2019, I made the decision that I would not only walk again, but dance. Hope House was incredibly supportive and enrolled me in physical therapy with Courage Kenny, where I have been working to regain both my strength and confidence. After a few months, I took my first three steps! I do not remember the last time I walked, but this process has helped me accomplish what I thought was impossible. Hope House helped me achieve my personal goals and I am grateful for the staff and the organization’s supporters for making this all possible.



Before coming to Hope House, I was in a locked treatment facility. I didn’t have control over my life. I couldn’t go outside much except in an enclosed area. When I was released, many places would not accept me because of my HIV, my anger and psychological issues, plus my drug use history. Hope House gave me a chance! Since arriving at Hope House, I am more involved in my community through volunteering my time. Because of the support I have received at Hope House, I turned my dream to have a part-time job into a reality! The staff at Hope House recognized my goals and helped me reach them. I want to thank everyone who supports Hope House.
