Troubled Teen Statistics: House of Hope Rhode Island

  1. 1. ABOUT HOUSE OF HOPE RHODE ISLAND Dana Altland and Jane Stach are the co-founders of House of Hope Rhode Island, an affiliate of National House of Hope in Orlando, FL. They first heard about House of Hope in 1998, when Sara Trollinger, the founder, came to speak at a Women of Faith Conference in Hartford, CT along with a teen from the program, who gave a powerful testimony. Sara, a former schoolteacher, was led by the Lord to establish a faith-based ministry called House of Hope of Orlando 25 years ago. This ministry consists of a residential program where hurting, troubled teens can learn to accept responsibility, submit to authority, get along with peers and adults and most importantly come to a saving knowledge of our LORD and SAVIOR JESUS CHRIST.
