    This is the best place you could ever be. I wish I could go back I never realized how much this establishment was helping me.

    The Star of Hope (SOH) saved my life. Being a non-believer, crippled hands, 9th grade drop-out, high and drunk for over 30 years, SOH saved me. I crawled to SOH in September 2010, dead, blind, and broken. Today, not only do I a GED, I hold a Bachelors Degree in Corporate Communication. I am a leader in my home church and, through a series of surgeries, my hands have been repaired. All of the above tasks were accomplished directly through the grace and mercy of God our Father and The Star of Hope. Forever Grateful!
