​MISSION AND CONCEPT

Our mission is to create positive life style changes for teenage girls. We do this by providing a nurturing skills building environment helping them to achieve their full potential while transitioning from adolescence to adulthood.

TheRACEhOUSE of HOPE is a unique therapeutic Residential Treatment Center that provides 24-hour guidance and personalized care to at-risk teenage girls ages 13-17 victimized by abuse, neglect, abandonment, and sex trafficking. We offer crisis stabilization and continued treatment in a minimum restrictive atmosphere. The RHH has a structured setting with individual and group therapy, treatment services, life skills, educational services, employment assistance, spiritual growth, substance abuse aide, and after-care programs.  We offer the warmth and safety of home and  transitional programs to assist teens when they are ready for their journey back “on the track.” We help our youth understand the challenges they are facing can be overcome by providing support, encouragement, and accountability to get to the “finish line”.

TheRACEhOUSE of HOPE's concept comes from combining racing enthusiasts, cars, and kids alike. We realized this parallel: Imagine riding as a passenger on a normal day, traveling thru an intersection, then  suddenly, "BAaM"! Out of nowhere you are blindsided and T-Boned. Once the smoke, damage, and debris has been assessed then towed away, the next question immediately becomes is that vehicle salvageable? The exact same thing happens as many teens are traumatized by an adverse situation they had no control over.  IMAGINE THE PAIN... We formed the RACETeam (a group of problem solvers, thinkers, and doers, fulfilling a humanitarian duty) just as the repair facility restores that damaged vehicle to factory conditions, we can help repair and restore these young ladies becoming whole again. They leave our facility with better reinforcements fit to continue their destination and journey through life!
