Hope Academy Testimonials


  • “When I came to Hope Academy I didn’t trust people, and then slowly I started to realize that Hope is more of one big accepting family and safe house for us teen parents. I wouldn’t have made it this far without all the help, support, and donations from everyone at Hope Academy” ~Hope Academy Student

  • “Hope Academy brings you and your child together.” ~Hope Academy Graduate
  • “The times I visited Hope Academy I was impressed with the emotional and personal support given to all of the girls.  Prior to the birth I knew she was getting great prenatal education as well as a network to express her feelings.  After the birth it was so much fun to see the two of them interact in a safe nurturing environment.  I really don’t know what would have happened if we didn’t have Hope Academy to wrap their arms around our student.  Our community needs people who not only are trained professionals to work with teenage mothers, but people whose passion is helping these young women to shine.  That’s what Hope Academy does. ” ~Lynn Brown, School Counselor at West Salem High School that partnered with Hope Academy

  • “I have had the opportunity to witness the direct impact that Hope Academy has had on the high school students it supports, as well as, the young infants that attend Hope Academy with their mothers.  It is an amazing program that supports a very vulnerable population of students and children in our community. ” ~Kelli Korneta, School Counselor that partnered with Hope Academy
