Give hope: Hope House fundraiser supports a ‘hand-up’ for homeless women

Hope House will host its annual Heart of Hope fundraiser Feb. 10 at The Northstone Country Club in Huntersville. Guests will enjoy food, dancing and raffles—all for a good cause.

The Hope House Foundation is a 501c3 in good standing, with a 13-year track record of providing transitional housing and support services to homeless women and children in Lake Norman.

The goal is for the “situational homeless” to procure long-term housing and self-sufficiency.  Hope House Foundation does not receive government funding and depends upon the generosity of the community to accomplish its mission.

Tickets are $75. For more information, call 704-516-2355 or email danagreshko@gmail.com

Hope House vision

To serve as a catalyst for social change to end homelessness in the Lake Norman area by providing and expanding transitional housing and supportive services to include families as they transform their lives into self-sufficiency.

Founder Dr. Lee Beth Lindquist had a dream to help homeless women and their children in the Lake Norman area who needed a hand up, “not a hand-out.”

She said the women were not victims of abuse, recovering from drugs or mentally ill. “They were simply situational homeless women who had fallen upon life’s situations and who needed time to get back on their feet,” she said.

How they do it

An Executive Director, Volunteer Coordinator, and House Manager, along with a large team of dedicated volunteers that help to manage the home 24 hrs per day 7 days per week.  Collaborative partners such as The Ada Jenkins Center, the Davidson Housing Coalition and a host of other supportive organizations work with Hope House residents, offering case management services, career support, life skills training and affordable housing options.
