House of Hope

Crossville, TN 38555
Phone: (931)707-2273
Program Director: Denise Melton

Programs and Services:

With the increasing removals of children from drug-endangered atmospheres, abuse and neglect, there needed to be a safe place for these children to stay until placement in foster care or relative care could be found.  Since the emotional effect of the situation on the children was devastating enough to have their world torn upside down, a desire to make the transition less traumatic was imminent.  Before 2002, these children either stayed with law enforcement officers or at the DCS office and placements could take up to 24 hours.  The House of Hope was created as a safe haven for these children during this transition.

The full functioning home encompasses loving staff and volunteers, meals, baths, play areas and anything to meet the needs of the children that come.  We are available 24/7, 7 days per week.
