Testimonials

"I remember getting to the Hope House around lunch time and being amazed at the food they had to eat.  Then I was led to my room. Here I was, sitting on a bed with a real mattress and a dust ruffle. No longer did I have to lie on a metal bunk with a thin sheet and no pillow. Every day just kept getting better.  I appreciated everything that was given to me and constantly prayed, thanking God for the second chance he had given me. The staff at Hope House immediately took me under their wing. They loved me when I could not love myself and brought me out of the worst situation that anyone could ever find themselves in: the feeling of hopelessness. For this I will be forever indebted to them." Jamila - Hope House Residential Graduate

“I live in Mike’s house, transitional housing for men. I have been there for a while and they have not given up on me. I am still having difficulty getting used to my depression medications, so it is hard for me to move ahead too fast. I have been in and out of jail and have struggled with my addiction for nine years. Luckily, I have not taken anything for almost seven months and I am working part-time. Because of everything going on right now, I have been laid off from my job. They are working with me to find another one and have been supportive every step of the way. Without their housing program I would be on the streets.” Jack - Hope House Men's Transitional Resident

“When I entered the Hope House I had literally had no hope. I took a chance because I felt I had nothing else to lose. It turned out to be one of the best decisions of my life. It has been 4 years now and my life is so different. I have been clean and sober, I’m working and I got my daughter back. I never would have thought all of this was even possible. Hope House was there when I needed help the most and they helped me change my life.” Maria - Hope House Residential Graduate

“I would not have been able to accomplish all I have in the past six years if I hadn't had the opportunity to live in the men's Transitional Houses. I was there for two years and was able to save for a car, which allowed me to get a better job and go to school part time. I just celebrated six years of sobriety! I am still working as I am an essential worker and I am grateful every day. Even though I graduated five years ago, knowing the Hope House staff is there for me has helped me stay on my path in recovery.” Paul - Hope House Men's Transitional Resident

“Hope House was instrumental in providing my son and I a safe place to begin to build a foundation for our recovery. I am eternally grateful to God and the Hope House for allowing our story to be a powerful testimony of what hope, love and grace can do." Genelle - Hope House Residential Graduate

"I just want to thank the Service League and Hope House for all your help and support. I have been five years clean and sober. I have my family back in my life. I have an amazing job and, most importantly, I can truly say that I love myself today. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for everything you do for all of us!" Joe - Men's Hope House Transitional Resident

"After graduating Hope House, I had a completely new vision for my life. I put my son in preschool and registered myself in community college. I transferred to University of San Francisco where I earned a bachelor's degree in Business Management, and went on to earn a master's degree in Community Health and Prevention Research from Stanford University's School of Medicine. Today, I have 10 years clean, I work in the School of Nursing at USF, I have been teaching health-related classes to incarcerated women for the past 5 years, and I think of Hope House often. I truly believe I'm where I am today because Hope House gave me a safe place to organize my thoughts, and a solid foundation to rebuild my life." Alex - Hope House Residential Treatment Graduate.

"I'm not sure where I would be if not for the Hope House. I came here at the beginning of the COVID and you guys helped me get on my feet, and most importantly gave me a fighting chance at a beautiful life. You guys have gone above and beyond to help me and I just want to say thank you so much." Carlos - Men's Hope House Transitional Resident

“My name is Ashley, I am currently living in Service League's transitional housing for women after completing nearly four months of intensive residential treatment for addiction. At 31, I was hospitalized; I was very physically and spiritually ill as a result of years tangled up with substance abuse. Without Service League, I do not believe that I would have made it to my next birthday. I turned 32 in the Hope House program with a renewed faith in myself and with a bright hope for the future. I am so proud to be a Hope House woman and a part of the Service League community. I have made lifelong connections and the compassion, support, and knowledge I was given has restored my life to the fullest.” Ashley - Hope House Resident

"I am so grateful for your contributions for this amazing foundation. I'm truly blessed to have a second chance at life." Tyler - Men's Hope House Transitional Resident

“I want to say thank you for the best help that anyone can get. You have opened up a door to life for me by allowing me to live in a clean and sober home. While I was there, I learned how to believe in myself and was able to get my life together. I also became the House Manager and was able to give back. Living in Mike's house for five years was the best thing that happened for me. I'm out now living in my own one-bedroom apartment and I’ve been clean and sober for 13 years. I am very grateful for you guys.” Jimmy G. - Hope House Transitional Graduate
