More Of Our History
In 1977 land was donated just outside of Liberty Hill, Texas and the first home was built with the kind and loving attention of her family, friends, a dedicated and committed staff, and several foundations in Texas. Today 16 children live in the original home and 16 Senior adults live in two duplex style homes recently built within the city limits of Liberty Hill, Texas. Most of the adults with us today were Rose’s children in 1967!
Rose instilled in all of us God’s love for children who need it the most. Rose worked every day until her very last on Jan. 1, 2003. On this day she asked the workers to take care of “her kids” and left the facility in the capable hands of her devoted staff under the direction of Ginger Hernandez, an assistant that trained with Rose for over 10 years. Ginger retired as director in early 2008 and the homes are now efficiently operated by our Executive Director, David Gould and a board of directors.
By the grace of God, Hope House has operated for over 50 years. With the help of our supporters, we will continue to care for the most severe cases of mental and physical disabilities well into the future.
