Susquehanna Valley House of Hope (SVHOH) is a Christian nondenominational residential facility which provides safe housing, education and counseling for hurting teenagers, ages 13 to 17.
Hurting teenagers are often unable to respond properly to authority and have difficulty relating constructively to peers. SVHOH provides safe housing, education and counseling for hurting central Pennsylvania teenagers, ages 13 to 17. A minimum of four hours a week of intensive individual counseling, family and group counseling, spiritual guidance, and parental counseling combine to heal fractured family relationships at SVHOH. Upon entering their child in SVHOH, parents sign a letter of commitment to attend parent education classes, one counseling session per week, and are encouraged to attend a weekly church service of their choice.
