Hello everyone,

This is an update on our Hope House project, temporary housing for families with children and, when space is available, homeless elderly women. We are working hard recruiting volunteers to help with our various task groups. If you need another copy of the task group list or want more information about a particular task group, please contact Gale Lothrop at She will gladly supply you with the needed information.

We have a particular property in mind located on Shelby Dr. in West Sedona, behind the recycling center. We are still in negotiations with the owner, so nothing is firmed up at this time. We hope to have this clarified in the next couple of months.

The Hope House steering committee has been meeting every week and addressing many issues. We have devised the following objectives, target audience, mission and vision statements:

Hope House Objective

  • Provide temporary housing for homeless children and their parent(s)/guardian(s) who are living full time in Sedona

  • Provide emergency housing for homeless senior women on an availability basis

  • Develop transition plan programs with homeless guests so they achieve a successful outcome

Hope House Target Audience – Most vulnerable in priority order

  1. Children (Infant through Middle School) with parent(s) or guardian(s)

  2. Youth (high school) with parent(s) or guardian(s)

  3. Senior Women 65+ living independently (non-assisted living)

  4. Vulnerable Senior couples 65+ living independently (non-assisted living)

Mission Statement: Providing Hope for Sedona’s Homeless Families

Vision Statement: A temporary home for Sedona’s most vulnerable children

On Thursday, March 28th, we held a presentation on Hope House at the church with 65-70 people in attendance. Invited were community members, churches and service organizations. Ten faith communities and eleven community organizations were represented. We will be holding more of these presentations in the future in order to share our vision with others in Sedona and invite them to join us.

Blessings as we work together to build a better world for the most vulnerable in Sedona.
