About House of Hope

All proceeds from Berna's Great Legs 5K are donated to House of Hope in Lowell, MA.

House of Hope (HOH) has a long-term commitment to grow their solutions-based programs and permanent housing services in order to make a real impact in ending homelessness in Massachusetts. HOH and House of Hope Housing (HOH Housing) are sister organizations that share a commitment to transitioning homeless families into a stable community life by providing tandem services that (1) respect and nurture families so that they can heal from the trauma of homelessness; and (2) support parents by guiding them through opportunities to build economic sufficiency and embrace a stable home life.  Today they are recognized as a leader in the state for their shelter programming, client productivity while in shelter, rate of permanent placement, and their permanent housing partnerships.
