About

In 2016 The Hope Center at Pullen will see the official launch of our Host Home Program, and we need your help!


The Host Home Program will pair volunteer host families with young people between the ages of 18-25 who have aged out of the foster care system.


The mission of this program is to help provide our young people with valuable independent living skills in a safe and supportive environment as they transition out of foster care into fully independent living. We hope that you will consider inviting a young person into your home.


We are looking for stable homes that have additional space for a young person to live and be mentored as they make that successful transition to independence.

We will provide training as well as ongoing support to all of our volunteer families. The length of stay will vary: we are looking both for people to provide respite help (very short term housing) as well as longer transitional stays (average length of stay 3-6 months).

We are so excited to roll this program! We know that this will be a pivotol turning point for young people who have aged out of foster care!
