At Hope Center for Women and Children, we provide safe, comfortable housing in a homey atmosphere complete with life recovery programming meant to meet the spiritual, physical and emotional needs of women and children facing homelessness, hunger, abuse, addiction and other struggles. Most importantly, we provide unconditional love and Christian community.

You can help offer healing and hope by participating in our Adopt-a-Room program. Here's how it works:

1. You or your group can make a financial donation and "adopt" a specific room at Hope Center for one calendar year. (Available rooms and financial support levels provided below.)

Contact us at 515-265-7272 or to reserve your room. Or fill out our online Contact Form.

2. You may pay for the full year at once or through pro-rated monthly giving.

3. A plaque with your name will be posted outside the door to the room you've adopted. We'll welcome you to schedule a time to visit Hope Center and take a photo by your room. Or, if you prefer to remain anonymous, we'll hang a plaque with a favorite Bible verse of your choosing.

4. Rooms are adopted on a yearly basis. We'll reach out to you near the end of your year to ask if you'd like to renew your commitment for the following year.

“I made the decision to ‘adopt’ a room at Hope Center for Women and Children because it felt like a tangible way for me to give to this wonderful organization. I adopted a kitchen which I see as the heart of a home. I can think about and pray for every person who walks in and out of that room, hoping that what they say and do can be a blessing to others both inside and outside the house.”
