A House of Hope
Hillsborough House of Hope provides a temporary residence for women who have been incarcerated in the Hillsborough County Jail. The home provides a safe and supportive environment for women while they locate a permanent residence and get a job.
In this Christian Residential Program three women are under supervision of a house manager and Program Manager. They live and learn in a program that can be tailored to each resident. Each woman has her own room and helps with the cleaning and meal preparation. They share their dreams and hopes with each other in Bible Study, devotions and chats on the porch.
"With love and support offered
here, the changes and growth in these women is tremendous.
Because of the gifts and support of so many individuals and
organizations, these women have hope that they can make it
on their own, and their lives are being changed."
ďIíve been in love with Mrs. Margaret Palmer and her husband
Tom since that day I laid eyes on them. Look up people of
prayer sent from God and you will find their names first. I
remember when Ms. Margaret first proposed this idea out
loud. I knew if anyone in the world could make this happen,
SHE could, and with Godís help along with the people He sent
alongside her, Hillsborough House of Hope became a viable
entity in our community. The women that are served and
nourished there show their gratitude by helping each other
and striving to become active, productive and health both
physically and spiritually. This is NOT a half-way house,
but a home for holistic mediation preparing Godís women for
Godly living. Itís truly the house that GODíS MERCY built.Ē
ďIt is an
honor for us to volunteer at Hillsborough House of Hope,
being partakers of a ministry that is a ďDoerĒ and not a
hearer only of the spoken Word of God.Ē
