Opening the door to hope and housing

House of Hope is committed to providing help and support to homeless men in our community. We offer shelter, food and guidance in obtaining needed services. A professional staff of case workers develops with each client a proactive plan to re-enter society as a productive citizen with stable housing.  This plan may include a variety of life skills trainings as well as consistent support in the application of those skills. We are non-denominational and non-discriminatory.


House of Hope is a cooperative venture among elements of the Front Royal and Warren County community.  Working together, state and local governments, community-based organizations, local businesses, area churches, Warren County Congregational Community Action Project (C-CAP), and concerned individuals serve the needs of the homeless in Front Royal and Warren County.
