Answering the Call to Reach This Generation

House of Hope Rhode Island, an affiliate of National House of Hope in Orlando, Florida, is set to be the first Christ-centered home in New England for healing troubled teens and reconciling them with their families. For several years, House of Hope Rhode Island has heard and responded to the cries for help from Rhode Island’s lost and hurting teens and their parents. These are families who have run out of options for their sons and daughters after trying the world’s “solutions,” methods which have failed our teens over and over again.


Why do those “solutions” often fail? Because they don’t — or can’t — acknowledge and confront the spiritual emptiness behind the pain and anger expressed by a troubled teen. Until this spiritual void is filled with a teen’s knowledge, understanding, and acceptance of God’s love and forgiveness, there can be no radical and lasting transformation. Instead, he or she will continue to seek worldly answers and travel down roads that lead to dead-ends, more pain, and even destruction or death.


In 2012, House of Hope RI began addressing the deepest needs of this generation by offering life-changing parenting classes and seminars, group and individual counseling for teens and their families, and lay counseling courses and certification for youth ministers and others who work closely with this generation.

A Home Filled with What They’re Missing

House of Hope Rhode Island is taking our mission to the next phase, with the first home and campus in Rhode Island offering around-the-clock support, education, and Christian counseling in a loving home environment. Operating on the same model as National House of Hope — with whom we’re affiliated — we envision a powerful, spiritually transforming ministry that will foster lasting change in teens and reconciliation with their families.


For the teens and families served by House of Hope Rhode Island, we can put an end to the endlessly revolving doors of hospitals, secular treatment centers, and the juvenile criminal justice system.
