Hope House Scholars Program

Since 2001, Hope House has collaborated with Stanford’s McCoy Family Center for Ethics in Society and Stanford Continuing Studies to run the House House Scholars Program. This program provides a unique opportunity for the residents of Hope House to integrate college-level coursework into their curriculum while in treatment for their substance use disorders.

The Stanford courses encompass themes such as ethics, social justice, and moral responsibility. Upon successful completion of a course, residents receive a certificate of completion and each graduate is also awarded a voucher to access a future Continuing Studies course free of charge. 

The Hope House Scholars Program is built on the belief that education should be accessible for all, irrespective of socioeconomic status. We tailor our courses to support the interests and aspirations of our residents. These courses, which are taught by Stanford faculty, post-doctoral fellows, and graduate students, provide meaningful opportunities to those for whom a liberal-arts education might otherwise be inaccessible, and offers a non-traditional approach to their recovery. 

We’re incredibly proud of this collaborative effort and are forever grateful to Stanford University for their two decades of generously devoting their time and energy to the Hope House residents.
