Hope Cottages Story to date: 

This premier project of the Harrison House of Hope began over five years ago when three grandmothers recognized a need for housing and educating the homeless mothers and their dependent children in this community.  A site was secured, the city approved, and plans were drawn to remodel the existing St. John’s Episcopal Day School. 

The ground breaking ceremony for Phase One Development was held February 2018 and the renovation began on Buildings A, D, and E.  February 2019 saw Phase One Development completed on these three buildings and the first guest and her young son were welcomed into their new cottage.  Buildings A and D each have two cottages.  Building E has one cottage, the Great Room, and a small laundry room.

This project is ready to begin Phase Two Development on Saturday, February 1, 2020 at 10:00 a.m. and the public is invited to attend a short ceremony to mark this special day in the history of Hope Cottages.  Work begins on Building C during Phase Two which will house the commercial kitchen, dining room, and the larger laundry facility.

Phase Two Development Building C renovation is made possible through the generous grants from The Ritter Foundation, Black Hills Energy, Petromark/White Oak Station and the Annual Dinner of Hope fundraiser. 

Hope Cottages continues to assist guests in becoming viable members of society through education, employment, and housing. 

Hope grows here!
