Since 2004 when "House of Hope" opened its doors in Bend and Redmond, 700 people have been helped. But now "House of Hope" is in danger of closing. Founder Darlene Woods says it's been a labor of love that has taken all her family's retirement funds. The bank is threatening to close their thrift store in Redmond, if the building isn't sold. “We need to save our thrift building. The banks says they will take $250,000 to clear it. So I’m standing in faith. We have a new sign called "Hope Center." We believe God is that big, he can bring this about.” House of Hope runs a home for men in Bend and a home for women and children in Redmond, along with the thrift store. These homes provides affordable housing for people in a community living atmosphere. Woods says they are looking to partner with someone to turn the thrift store into a shelter and job training center.
