House of Hope

The House of Hope is our Southwest Florida Outreach Ministry's addiction recovery program. We offer affordable, comprehensive addiction support and recovery services including temporary housing, food, clothing, counseling, case management, referral, and follow-up. This program is available to men over a nine month period of time. Participants come from a variety of backgrounds and are referred to us from partnering organizations or simply on a walk-in basis. House of Hope currently has space for six individuals and is operated in a safe environment by the Director, Ted Stringer.

The House of Hope is a faith-based program and provides weekly Overcomers meetings which are group support meetings. Individual counseling is also provided. We are currently researching funding opportunities for expanding the program's services to cover program expenses for participants during the initial transition period of the program. This allows the individuals to become familiar with expectations, gather paperwork, and secure employment in order to contribute the program fee and achieve success. However, the current economic conditions have made it more difficult for participants to secure employment and as a result, more pressure to cover the program costs has fallen on Southwest Florida Outreach Ministry.
