Houses of H.O.P.E. was founded in 2007 by Wanda Smith, current President.
Houses of H.O.P.E. (Helping Other People Excel) is a non-profit ministry with a vision to bring hope, love, and encouragement to all groups of people in need. Its mission is to give back to the community by providing food and shelter to the homeless, meeting the needs of the elderly, as well as touching the lives of adults, teenagers, and children. Houses of H.O.P.E. provides help to those in crisis by fulfilling their tangible need, which in turn helps to encourage, motivate and show love to those who just want someone to care.
