HIGH POINT, N.C. -- The Brown family in High Point is getting a new start in life thanks to the Hope House.

"It's more than a blessing," says Sterling Brown. "It came at a time when we were going through a tremendous time."

The Brown family was living in a hotel and was not sure if they would be able to own another house again. But Open Door Ministries Hope House gave the family time to search for jobs and learn new skills without worrying about where the family will spend the night.

"It's hard to plan for the future because any ideas you are making, the question is going to remain, ‘Where am I going at the end of the day?’" Brown said.

Executive Director of Open Door Ministries Steve Key says clients can stay at the house for up to 6 months. But if a family works hard, Key says a family can leave Hope House in less than 6 months.

"We saw in them a potential to get out of this situation and the drive and the motivation to do that," Kay said.
