Welcome to Acres of Hope

Acres of Hope provides a safe family environment and a healthy living program for women with children that sets the foundation of change and breaks the cycle of homelessness. We aim to improve the physical, emotional, social, economic and spiritual quality of life for many women and their children. We accomplish this by identifying and replacing faulty belief systems that drive destructive behaviors with biblically-based truths and the implementation of healthy life skills.
