House Of Hope Cdc
65 Shippen Ave, Warwick, RI 02888
Absolutely horrendous! I am praying that things have changed over the past 10 years at The House of Hope. And praying the people who run it has changed. My experiences with them back in 2004 and 2005 were nothing less than horrible and traumatic. Like the woman who posted before me...I too am and was a perfectly normal, stable and decent human being who was dealing with an extremely tough and painful time. These people who claimed they wanted to help ended up traumatizing me even more. I agree one hundred percent with what Eliza2008 wrote and beyond that...They slandered my name, lied about me, threw me out in the middle of winter with 10 minutes notice to get all of my things and get out with no where to go. There is much more but it isn't worth writing it all now. But it was all because I too was not willing to be "owned" and I stood up for myself. Like I said..it has been many years and I sincerely hope things and people have changed there. Just be careful. Thank the Lord my life is a million times better now and he got me through those times. I never would have gotten through without him. Be careful of wolves in sheeps' clothing. Blessings

When people are leaving a traumatic situation, especially when children are involved, they don't deserve to be lured into an even more traumatic situation. The Warwick House of Hope offers transitional and long-term housing for people who come from these sorts of circumstances and are looking for affordable housing. After an interview process and careful screening you are then either chosen or not to move into one of their housing units. You are given a standard lease. But what they don't tell you is that they want to own you. I was working full time, single mother, being told that I could not work overtime to pay their rent because it conflicted with a ""MEETING"". These meetings are absolutely useless tidbits of information they wish to shove down your throat and absolutely meant to waste your time, but you deal with them. They take credit for all of your accomplishments that are made ON YOUR OWN, but don't want you to live in a manner that is healthy. The Warwick House of Hope is great if you're a recovering substance abuser, even perpetually in a homeless situation, and you need a certain guidance that maybe you never had. But if you are a perfectly normal, stable, decent human being who fell on hard times or were in a turbulent situation this is DEFINITELY NOT THE PLACE FOR YOU unless you love people butting into your life in ways they have no business doing. Trust me, what they expect of you in reality is not in the lease and they don't bank on the fact that you're smart enough to realize that!
