About Us

Foothills House of Hope

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.
