Hope House of Colorado empowers parenting teenage moms to strive for personal and economic self-sufficiency and to understand their significance in God's sight, resulting in a healthy future for them, and for their children. Hope House of Colorado was incorporated in October 2000, and the next three years were spent developing a comprehensive self sufficiency program, building a funding base, and learning how to run a non-profit organization. In April 2003, Hope House opened the doors of its first Residential Program. In 2006, Hope House moved into their own facility (Read our story). In 2007, Hope House began providing Community Programs to teen mothers, including a Mentoring Program, and a GED Program.
