Rea of Hope

Rea of Hope I & II


14 beds in two locations

Our residents are required to work, attend school, volunteer at an approved location. The focus is on their recovery in a 12 step-based fellowship and establishing themselves as responsible members of our community. As a collaborative effort, we are working closely with many existing agencies to provide training in job skills, GED preparation, counseling, transportation, etc. Working with other agencies is a priority. The focus on collaboration is a key.

The Rea of Hope is staffed twenty-four hours a day to insure a supportive, safe environment. The program is structured to encourage personal growth and responsibility. A minimum six month commitment must be made.

The original Rea of Hope house is located on Lee Street in Charleston. The house is staffed 24 hours a day to insure a supportive and safe environment. Our residents are required to work, attend school, or volunteer at an approved location.

Rea of Hope II is just around the corner fron the original house. Together, both houses accomodate 14 beds. A resident of Rea of Hope will focus on their recovery in a 12 step-based fellowship program while establishing themselves as responsible members of our community..

As graduates, the women already have a support system in place, employment and connection to the community. We will work with the women to get their credit, fines and other financial and legal problems solved.

The goals of the Rea of Hope New Life Apartments are to provide an affordable beginning for these women; avoiding the stumbling blocks to a successful recovery.
