If you are interested in becoming a resident of Hope Thru Housing you may write to us from jail or call and make an appointment to be interviewed. Prospective residents should not be under the influence of drugs or alcohol for the interview and if needed must go through detox before coming into the program. If you are, we'll ask you to wait till you're coherent to do a real interview. We consider the interview the first step in becoming a part of our community. Since we receive no government funds for taking a resident and charge no fee, the only thing that matters to us is to be there for people who really want to change. The only thing prospective residents have to offer us is his word. We take that word very seriously. When the person commits to staying 24 months, we want that commitment to mean something. NO LIES will be tolerated in the interview. If the person lies "to get in", and we discover the lie, the person will be asked to leave the program. We really want to start on a new note, where the interview is the first step to a new life of honesty and decency and integrity.
