WELCOMING YOU HOME
Since 1998, the Hillsborough House of Hope has been committed to providing a support system for women transitioning out of correctional institutions and seeking positive reinforcement that aids in their personal, social and professional rehabilitation. Our mission is to help formerly incarcerated women become the person God created them to be.
For years, Margaret Palmer was a volunteer counselor for women serving time in Hillsborough County Correctional Facilities. Over the course of her efforts, she witnessed many women make significant progress in their lives while incarcerated but then face hardship and struggle after their release.
Hillsborough House of Hope provides temporary residence to women transitioning out of correctional institutions and provides assistance with job training and placement; holistic workshops; parent focused seminars; and Bible study to nurture a close relationship with the Lord.
There are many ways that individuals and organizations can partner with us. From monetary to in-kind contributions to volunteering, Hillsborough House of Hope is dedicated to continuing its mission through collaborative efforts and community support. We invite you to partner with us!
