November 12th, 2019 marked the grand opening of Amanda’s House; a residential treatment program located in Three Rivers; MI. Amanda’s House is the first of what Hope United envisions to be a dozen supportive housing units to be opened across the county. Over 100 individuals were in attendance at the ribbon cutting ceremony including representatives from Three Rivers Area Community Foundation and also State representative Aaron Miller.
There was such excitement in the air as recognition and thanks was given to the 232 volunteers who contributed approximately 2,183 volunteer hours toward the renovation project. Countless donors and supporters were instrumental in providing for the renovation of the home. Amanda’s House truly is the house that love built and it is evident from the first time you walk through the front door.
The theme, carried out all throughout the décor of the home, is “Daughters of the King.” Pictures of women and girls are displayed throughout the home, celebrating our high calling as women and serving as a reminder to the women living in the home that we are all daughters of the King of Kings and Lord of Lords. The message is that because of this truth, we can know that we are all loved and cherished for who God has created us to be.
We are so excited to welcome women to Amanda’s House very soon. We have no doubt that many lives will be changed and transformed because a community cared enough to make Amanda’s House possible!
