Individual and Family Counseling

Kansas City House of Hope (KCHOH) offers residential counseling services for teenage girls and their families. The program requires individual as well as family counseling to help facilitate the most successful outcome. Each of our counselors hold their Master's in Social Work and use trauma-based therapies to help lead to maximum healing. Parents also participate in weekly classes to help gain a sense of support, while learning new parenting techniques.

Population(s) Served

The loving, stable family environment of Kansas City House of Hope (KCHOH) creates a welcoming structure for teenagers. Residents are expected to accept responsibility, respect authority and effectively communicate with peers and adults. To accomplish these goals, teens receive instruction in life skills, assigned household duties, and are supervised by 24-hour house staff members.  Responsibility is earned and tested through a 2-week orientation and 4-phase program, which rewards the teens' performances and attitudes. The residential center is a safe environment for teens at risk of themselves and is coupled with real-time security cameras to monitor resident activities and safety.

Population(s) Served

Each student attends an on-site school hosted through Basehor-Linwood Highschool. The program offers transferable credits, high school diplomas and junior college-level courses. Prior transcripts are sent to Basehor-Linwood. Then an individualized educational program is then designed for each student, allowing them to progress at their own pace. Many students are behind in their grade level and have the opportunity to work in a more conducive environment to achieve their grade level.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

GOALSTo rescue hurting, runaway teenagers from the destructive forces invading society.To serve these teenagers offering them hope and a future through love, Christian counseling, teaching and education based on God’s Word.To assist in healing the hurts and scars from these teenagers’ pasts.To help free hurting teenagers from the negative influences upon their daily lives.To teach teenagers the life skills in order to prepare them to become solid citizens and contributing members of society.To provide a temporary home, a safe harbor, where teenagers are nourished and protected from the ways of the street, until they can be reconciled with their family.To restore and heal the entire family unit, whenever possible.To serve each resident with respect and unconditional love as demonstrated directly to the teenager and among the staff.Your help through prayer, volunteering and financial support make all of this possible. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts . We are excited to see what God has in store . House of Hope KC has capacity for 24 girls but eventually hopes to expand to be able to serve more girls and families

House of Hope Kansas City is structured on a multi-phase system; each phase has an increased expectation of responsibility of the prior phase level. By learning trust, your teen will also be earning privileges. Privileges increase with each level. Privileges are important for your teen’s personal growth and maturity as a young man/woman. It is important to use these privileges with maturity and responsibility. Staff will evaluate your teen’s growth to determine promotion to the next phase. To reinforce positive attitudes and actions there is a merit point system that the girls can earn points to use in our merit store. If there is something the resident does that is simply cutting corners or forgetful, they are given work duties. For issues of the heart, like lying, deception, disobedience or disrespect they are given written assignments.

House of Hope Kansas City strives to provide top-quality care for hurting adolescents and their families. Former president Ronald Reagan states it best: “the philosophy and example of the House of Hope…needs to be shared across our nation. Those who want to help disturbed teenagers should be able to know that there is a way…and that way works. I challenge citizens in major cities in every state to look to House of Hope as a model for similar homes for hurting teenagers across the nation.

We continue to work to let families in the Midwest know about House of Hope Kansas City.  We are working diligently to keep our website updated and increase consumer awareness.
