Our DIRECTOR / founder

God put it in my heart to follow His purpose and plan for my life by starting this non-profit faith based transitional house I now call Olivia's House of Hope. Being a victim of abuse for many years moved me to change who I was in order to help others."

Brace up your minds; be sober. Set your HOPE wholly & unchangeably on the grace that is coming to you when Jesus Christ is revealed. Live as children of obedience; do not conform yourselves to the desire in your former ignorance.But as the One who called is holy, you yourselves also be holy in all your conduct & manner of living.

1st Peter 1: 13, 14, & 15
