Harris A. Sanders, Architects, PC


We provide transitional housing to homeless women in Fulton and Montgomery counties. Holistic living and work experience programs prepare women to work towards independent living and family unification.


Our vision is a community where chronic homelessness and the resulting family separations no longer exist.


Values Statement
We share our Christian values and holistic lifestyle by example.  We endeavor to be as self-supporting and connected to the community as we encourage our clients to be.  Our clients are urged to pay it forward to the next woman by volunteering in our worksites which contributes to their own sense of dignity and purpose.




2021 is Haven of Hope’s ninth year of operation as a registered non-profit.

The farmhouse can accommodate both singles and families. Our residents come from all walks of life, their circumstances and their needs are as unique as they are individuals. The average stay at Haven of Hope Farm is currently 3 to 6 months.  Homelessness and dependence are often a chronic and generational problem.  We allow our residents the time they need to accomplish the goals necessary to start breaking those chronic or generational cycles and we continue to support our women after they have transitioned to permanent housing.
