In October 2004, Holy Cross Episcopal Church saw a need for a day shelter in the downtown neighborhood area of Shreveport. Initially the Hope House provided our friends with a place to enjoy coffee, take a shower, shave, brush their teeth, do their laundry, receive mail, access telephone service, enjoy a cold drink of water and maybe a snack or meal when provided. As of this year, we have over 1,700 individuals who are registered at the Hope House.

Hope House is situated just down the street from the church on Austen Place. The Executive Director of Hope House is Donna Earnest. For more information on the services Hope House offers, see the drop down tab. For more on how you can help or if you know someone in need of our services, please contact Donna at Hope House either through the Facebook page or by giving them a call at ( 318)220-7650.

We are always eager to have volunteers help us with our ministry at Hope House!
