Our mission is to have No Family Homeless in the Rappahannock region.
Loisann’s Hope House is the lead agency in the region for all those experiencing a housing crisis, and to mitigate those entering into homelessness. For over thirty-one years, Loisann’s Hope House has played a vital role in the safety, wellness and shelter in the Rappahannock region. As the first and largest family homeless shelter we have transformed the lives of children and over a thousand families through intensive case management by offering an environment and program that is respectful, safe, and healthy for the men, women, and children. More than a shelter! We improve the quality of life for our families experiencing homelessness by helping them move directly into permanent housing.
We offer educational opportunities and support services which include: intensive case management, tutoring, employment or vocational training, placement and referrals, life skills and social skills courses, stress management, as well as financial management, wellness and nutrition. We also provide transportation for those families without an automobile. We utilize the local community resources and make referrals for mental health counseling, domestic violence counseling, parenting classes, substance abuse treatment and medical/dental services.
Hope House is honored to bear the name of a compassionate, kind social worker who began her life in Fredericksburg. Loisann exemplified the ideals of Hope House, which strives to instill hope in and improve the quality of life for children and their families.
