hope house gives
an abundance of love, hope, and support

Hope House’s mission is to improve the quality of life for HIV-affected individuals and their families by providing high quality early childhood education and social services. Hope House began in 1995 when a committed group of volunteers from the Junior League of Memphis set out to meet a growing need in their community. They found that women affected by HIV in Memphis had special needs and opened Hope House to meet the increasing demand for services. Hope House began as a daycare center serving five children three days a week and is now a comprehensive social services organization.
Get a glimpse of inside hope house
Our children and families at Hope House not only face the stigma that comes with living with HIV, but also the additional challenges of living in poverty, which can mean limited access to vital resources like quality childcare, affordable housing and reliable transportation.
And studies show that these programs are positively correlated with viral suppression and better health outcomes for those living with HIV, allowing them to live a long and healthy life. We have not only seen our client’s lives change in the process, but also an increased excitement and willingness to become advocates and educate others to stop the spread of HIV in their community.
Hope House is a small organization that greatly benefits from volunteer support.
Volunteer opportunities include
- spending time with our children in and outside the classrooms
- being a baby rocker
- providing assistance with resume building, interviewing, and job searching.
- Help with our fun events in the fall and spring.
- And MUCH much more.
We cannot do what we do for our clients without the support of volunteers. Volunteers are also crucial in helping us show our clients that they matter and are loved. You can find out more about ways to get involved by following us on social media on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter and checking out our website at www.hopehousememphis.org

I was sitting down with a friend who works in sales at FedEx a few years ago and I brought up the question of Amazon replacing FedEx as a dominant player in shipping. My friend said that would never happen. FedEx isn’t worried about Amazon. At that time Amazon Prime was new. Amazon had just purchased a fleet of jets and trailers for shipping. A look at Amazon’s past was like the handwriting on the wall for me.
