"I stayed at Hope House for three weeks. I had no other place to go. Staff really helped me move forward with my life."
A safe place for teens in crisis.
Opened in 2015, Hope House is a six-bed emergency shelter for youth ages 14 –19 who are homeless or at risk of homelessness. Located in Excelsior and helping youth from the southwest suburbs and surrounding areas, Hope House is a comfortable, 2-story residential home where all youth are welcome.
When home is not a safe place, or youth are kicked out of home, couch-hopping, or on the streets, Hope House offers a safe alternative. Youth share kitchen, living, recreational, and beautiful outdoor spaces and receive transportation to school.
Supportive staff help youth work through any crisis, secure community resources, and plan for the next step on their journey.
Meals are provided on-site, along with transportation to school. Activities include quiet space for reflection, peer support groups addressing mental health, chemical use, family and school conflict, and gender identity.
At Hope House, youth gain self-sufficiency and independence, with a goal of family reconciliation and reunification.
