A place where women seek freedom.


House of Hope offers a wide variety of class options.  We have a class for you no matter what season you find yourself in.  This is a place to gather together with other women and learn about God’s truth for your life.  It is a place where you can come and be transparent – no masks required.  Consider taking a class with us!  If you have any questions, please contact Natalie Polzin, Director of Classes.
