The mission of Home With Hope, Inc. is to provide structured living and transitional services for alcoholics/addicts who are willing to work the Twelve Step, self-help program of recovery.
The Home With Hope is the only facility of its kind n the Lafayette area that provides a continuum of care, often following primary treatment or detox for alcoholism and other drug addictions, for men and women age 18 and older. We help our clients learn how to live their lives as acceptable members of their communities, free from addiction and substance abuse, by providing a environment conducive to recovery.
We provide strict monitoring and structure, case management, random drug and alcohol screening, and the opportunity to seek employment and work in the community. Further, we require daily 12-step meeting attendance, acquiring a 12-step sponsor and “home group” within their first 30 days of residency, as well as daily accountability.The men and women of Home With Hope have a chance to leave the endless cycle of dependency on social services and involvement in the legal and correctional systems behind them. They can be reunited with their families and children and become productive members of society. Most importantly, addicts and alcoholics in recovery can regain control over their own lives and futures. Recovery is a continual lifelong and difficult process that requires personal determination and support from family, friends and the community. The Home With Hope offers a safe and structured environment for clients to start this journey towards recovery.
In 1971, using start-up funds provided by the Lilly Endowment, Inc. and contributions from the Lafayette District of the United Methodist Church, the Lafayette Roman Catholic Diocese, the United Presbyterian Church, and concerned local businesses and private citizens, the Home With Hope, Inc.
In 1997, an apartment complex was purchased at 920 N. 11th Street which provides additional space for 44 men and women transitioning from the larger facilities. Each two-bedroom apartment is shared by four clients.
In November 2007, Home With Hope opened a 32-bed residential recovery house at 1119 Ferry Street. The building was a gift from NCHS of Lafayette, IN with other generous assistance from NCHS, the Community Foundation, West Lafayette CDBG and many other community partners. The Home With Hope, a non-profit organization with 501(c)3 status, is a safe refuge for alcoholics and addicts throughout the state of Indiana who are ready and willing to change their lives for the better.
The atmosphere of recovery in our program is developed through strict structure and caring, and by maintaining a zero-tolerance environment. We assist in teaching and modeling acceptable behaviors to help with successful recovery and community re-integration. Attending 12-step meetings, seriously working the steps with a sponsor, and applying the 12-step principles to one's everyday living becomes the cornerstone for helping to break the cycle of addiction for our clients.Home With Hope has become a well-established beacon of the Lafayette community by helping alcoholics and addicts overcome their struggles with addiction. As a private non-profit organization, Home with Hope is self supporting through client fees, but also relies heavily on tax-exempt donations to continue its important recovery services and to provide a comfortable and safe living environment for its residents.
