Since 1985 the House of Hope residential program has been providing teens ages 13-17 a place to find hope and healing in a loving, supportive environment until they are reconciled with their parents.

Who We Are 

House of Hope Sandhills is a Christian residential home and school for teenage boys, ages 13-17. We provide a Christ-centered home where teens in crisis can find hope and healing  through ACADEMIC, EMOTIONAL, PHYSICAL, and SPIRITUAL development, while promoting family restoration and reunification through parental involvement.​​

Families come to us for various reasons. They are in some kind of crisis relating to their teenager’s behavior. Our teacher, houseparents, counselor and staff work together to help each teen develop to their maximum potential as they work their way through the Biblically based program, designed to correct negative behaviors and to heal fractured family relationships. On average, residents stay at House of Hope Sandhills for 12-18 months, depending on their individual progress and initiative.

The House of Hope Sandhills residential program is dedicated to modeling a Christ-centered family environment for the teens. The teens eat family-style meals together that are cooked in the residential home. They help with meal preparation, chores and clean up. The houseparents and the teens participate in family activities such as daily devotions, recreational activities, meals, chores and activities. The teens are learning to address the struggles in their own lives that have brought them to House of Hope Sandhills. Chores, duties and responsibilities are only a part of their healing process.

Teens attend our private school that utilizes the Accelerated Christian Education program known as PACE.  . Most of our teens are behind when they come to House of Hope Sandhills because of poor attendance and lack of motivation. In our program, they can make up courses and improve their academic level. Upon arrival, each student is given a diagnostic test which determines an appropriate placement level for each course. Students are able to achieve according to their individual initiative and potential.

Once a teen has completed our Residential Program he will begin our AfterCare program. We found that many of our young men continued to struggle when they return home, so our AfterCare program is focused on helping them maintain the positive changes they made while in the residential program. We walk alongside the young men helping them develop a college or career plan for life after high school, which helps to give them a sense of purpose. We also help them develop relationships with positive influencers in their communities, such as youth groups and other support systems, which help them achieve the plans they develop for themselves.
