WELCOMING YOU HOME
Since 1998, the Hillsborough House of Hope has been committed to providing a support system for women in need. We provide shelter and support to women who are homeless due to criminal records, substance abuse or domestic violence, allowing them to become productive, self-sustaining members of the community, and reunite with their children and families.
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.
