Days of Hope


Women’s Days of Hope (DOH) Program has been a ministry of Jesus House since 2008. The DOH Program benefits the women currently residing at Limen House (Level III Sober Living Residence) and Sojourners’ Place (a transitional homeless shelter), as well as alumni that have successfully completed programs from those facilities.  

DOH hosts 20 - 30 women at our monthly dinners and evening programs and weekend retreats.  The women look forward to attending the programs which include a nutritious meal, a mindfulness practice, a spiritual and educational element, an activity or art element, and sharing. The level of participation and sharing is phenomenal. We have been told that DOH programs have been an important part of the women's recovery process.

The mission of DOH is to create spirit-inspired connections to help women rediscover, restore, and re-awaken their true selves. Through shared experiences, the women have an opportunity to rediscover their God-given dignity and see their values as part of the human community…our hope is to inspire hope and personal transformation. The programs are designed to nurture mind, body and spirit and help the women navigate changes, challenges, and choices in their lives. 

If you are interested in volunteering for Days for Hope, to work with these amazing women, or if you would like to learn more about our Days of Hope program for your organization, please call the Jesus House office at 302.995.6859 or email Cindy Mooney at


"Seeing the women participate in this program over the course of the year, I found them building up their self-confidence, and getting comfortable expressing their own spiritual beliefs, which they have not looked at, or thought about, for a really long time."
