I volunteer there and have for several years. They also have classes for first time juvenile offenders and summer activities for at-risk children. Juvenile Court actually asked House of Hope to create the program. Then there is also their thrift store, Threads of Hope. Many families and children have been given assistance with clothing, household items and furniture through the store and House of Hope. Anyone that works with these children directly request assistance when working cases. They pick up the slack for immediate needs and the house is available 24/7 to children and those that work with children to get what the children need. They also have the only facility for 40 miles that qualifies to do forensic interviews. Without the House of Hope kids, parents, officers and caseworkers would have to travel to Cookeville just to get an interview done with a child. I could go on and on about what they do. Get this they do it with one Director and 1 part-time employee at the House. Volunteers pick up the slack to keep cost down. Up until a year ago the only staff at House of Hope was the Director. Very minimal budget for what they do. They have gone from 2 services to over 10 programs and serivces since Denise the director took over in Jan of 2006 and recruited I think some of the best volunteers and I am proud to say that I am one. She was a volunteer for a year there before becoming the director. Just give her a call sometime and check it out.
