"For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do
good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do."
Foothills House of Hope Ministries, Inc. is a non-denominational, non-discriminatory, Christ-centered non-profit organization for hurting and troubled individuals. Founded in October of 2000 in Hickory, North Carolina, the ministry was formed in response to a vision given to Ken and DeeDee Niewulis “to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim freedom for the captives, and to release from darkness to them that are bound…” (Isaiah 61:1)
The Foothills House of Hope (FHOH) Program is an outgrowth ministry under the umbrella of Foothills House of Hope Ministries, Inc. This outgrowth ministry accepts troubled girls into our program, ages 13 through 17, regardless of their race or religious background.
The Residential Program offers a temporary home for these youth, where the teen and their parent(s) receive Biblical counseling, training, mentoring, youth skills and the opportunity to attend Foothills School of Hope, a Christian school offering the Accelerated Christian Education (PACE) Program.
To offer young people hope and a future through unconditional love, structure, Christian counseling, teaching and education based on God’s word.
To provide confidential, Biblical counseling to the teen’s parents and/or guardians, fulfilling God’s heart’s desire as described in Malachi 4:6.
To rescue hurting, troubled youth from the destructive forces invading the lives of our teens today by offering Godly alternatives.
To assist in healing the hurts and scars from these young peoples’ past.
To help free young people from the bondage which have held them captive, such as drugs, alcohol, physical, mental, and emotional abuse.
To teach youth skills and training which will prepare them to become productive citizens and an effective part of society.
To provide a temporary home, a safe harbor where these youth are loved, nourished, nurtured, clothed and protected from the muck and mire of the world, until they can be reconciled with their family, whenever possible. This will be administered through a loving, home-style environment.
