Hope Mansion exists to break the chain of hopelessness by providing women in crisis pregnancy a loving, structured residential environment, as well the necessary time, resources, and support for them and their babies, in order to become productive, well-balanced citizens.
Currently, the physical and psychological consequences of abortion, abandonment, abuse, loneliness, and poverty are growing in unprecedented measure. Without resources, education, life skills, knowledge of child rearing, or a spiritual foundation, women will likely return to old friends, former ways of life, and potentially more unplanned pregnancies.
Hope Mansion has been helping single, pregnant women in need of housing and hope since 2012. Of those women:
- 100% were homeless
- 65% moved forward in their education
- 91% chose parenting
- 9% chose adoption
Hope Mansion was purchased in January 2011. After 18 months of renovation, the mansion opened in September, 2012. With over 14,000 square feet of living space, Hope Mansion has the capacity to house up to 15 girls. According to Mayor Rob Franke, this has become a treasure in the city of Cedar Hill. The entire community seems to have gathered around the facility with generous donations from businesses, churches and friends. Hope Mansion presents an example of genuine Christian compassion influencing lives and a community.
