Support Groups

Experience community and build lasting relationships when you take part in support groups at House of Hope.

What’s a Support Group?

A support group is a safe place for women to gather, share their experiences, and encourage each other. Enjoy a comfortable environment where you can be yourself and connect with new friends. All women over age 18 are invited.

How Do I Attend?

Join at any time because our meetings are drop-in groups. No registration is needed.
