House of Hope

The House of Hope seeks to end the cycle of violence and abuse by providing survivors of intimate partner violence, sexual assault, and stalking appropriate and effective services and programs. The program serves both Native and non-Native individuals in Citizen Potawatomi Nation tribal jurisdiction and neighboring communities by providing assistance in locating emergency shelter, advocacy, safety planning, support groups, resources and referrals, and a free parenting class that is available to the community.

As of September 2017, House of Hope opened a local shelter. The shelter is designated for women and their children seeking safety as a result of intimate partner violence, sexual assault, or stalking. There is no set jurisdiction for the shelter, meaning residents do not have to have resided in only Pottawatomie, Seminole, or Cleveland County.

If the client does not meet eligibility or jurisdictional boundaries, referrals to other programs and services are always available. Learn more at
