The Hope House is a program of the Richmond/Wayne County Halfway House Corp.  This organization is a 501-c-3 and our EIN number is 35-2130321. 

We started operations in November of 2001 and we have not closed our doors yet.  In a normal day at the homeless shelter, we house about 25 men an evening.  We also average about 15 men in the addictions recovery program.  The clients of the addictions recovery program are the hosts for the homeless shelter and in doing this become a model for the life some of the homeless men could achieve if they enter the recovery program. 

Our partners at the Hope House include many churches, foundations, and other agencies dealing with substance abuse and addictions.  The foundation list includes the Reid Hospital Community Benefit Fund, the Wayne County Foundation, the Stamm-Koechlein Family Foundation, The United Way of Whitewater Valley and the Drug-Free of Wayne County Committee.  The agencies we work with include Aspire Medical, Meridian Services, Reid Hospital and Area 9 for the Aging.

Our building is on the grounds of the Richmond State Hospital in a building provided by the hospital for our mission.  

We also receive many private donations from individuals.  We ask that if you are interested in keeping the mission of the Hope House in operation, please consider a donation, we can use financial support at any level.  

For 2018-2019, we now participate in the Neighborhood Assistance Program (N.A.P.) of the state of Indiana and this program can provide donors with a 50% state tax credit in addition to the full donation amount as a federal tax deduction.  As an example, a donation of $1,000 would provide an Indiana state tax credit of $500 and a full charitable donation on federal taxes up to 35%.  The donation of $1,000 could end up costing only $150 in net costs to the donor.   Please check with the Hope House staff if you are interested in participating in the N.A.P. program.


We appreciate your interest in the Hope House.  If you are interested in financially supporting our programs, please call the Hope House directly.  Thank you in advance for your consideration.
