Place 2nd Mile Education Center
The House of Hope currently has 11 girls with capacity for 12. They range in age from 4 to 15. There are three Tia's (or house moms) who take care of the girls. Two Tia's live in the home 24/7 and one comes in daily to help with chores, homework, bathing, and cooking. The girls attend 2nd Mile Education Center and are able to attend the trade school for english or sewing classes. All of the girls come from traumatic homes with no family available or willing to care for them. A Psychologist on staff works with the girls and Tia's individually as well as a family unit. The family attends "Church of God for the Nations" and participate in daily devotions with the Tia's. The girls enjoy swimming in the ocean, playing games, movies and pizza.
