House of Hope celebrates 25 years with 25 Stories of Hope campaign


WATERLOO, Iowa (KWWL) - To celebrate their 25 years of service, House of Hope is launching 25 Stories of Hope, a social media awareness campaign.

Set to launch in June, the virtual celebration will "feature 25 weeks of videos, photos, stories and more representing the participants, supporters, leaders and volunteers that have been critical in the organization’s success with decreasing barriers for women and their families in the Cedar Valley," according to a news release.

House of Hope's mission is to provide homeless mothers and their children with support and transitional housing so they can go on to achieve secure families, independence and permanent homes. They also work with women who age out of foster care through their Pillars program. The non-profit's work has proven successful. 86-percent of those who come to House of Hope for help and support leave the program with employment and financial stability. As of June 2018, House of Hope serves 15 families at a time.

House of Hope is asking for anyone whose life has been touched in any way by an experience with House of Hope to send photos or stories to: For more information, contact Development Coordinator, Dusky Steele, at 319-232-3823.

“House of Hope has broken hundreds of cycles of homelessness for single-mother families over the last 25 years with the support of this community. We are excited to see what change can be made over the next 25 years!”
