Dear Friends of Hope House,

           Members of the Rotary Club of Jasper learned about children that were suddenly taken from a negative or dysfunctional home environment often had to sit in the lobby of the Pickens County jail until a home could be located for them.  Upon hearing of this circumstance, Nelson Dussault, a long time resident of Big Canoe, brought his dream of Hope house to the members of the Rotary Club of Jasper who committed to build a HOME that would be open 24/7 to be there for these children.

Hope House opened in May of 1998 and over 400 children from almost new born to teenagers have found welcome and love at Hope House.  To date, over 2000 individuals, businesses, and organizations have responded to the need.  We depend totally on the generosity of the community and your interest and support is greatly appreciated.

“We continue to rely on community support to keep this “safe place” open to protect these vulnerable children.”

For the Children
