Recently the Guthrie Noon Lions Club honored the Guthrie Hope House with a supportive donation of $450. 

Lions President Steve Gentling saluted the work of the Hope House, noting that in three years of operation, the organization has served over 600 men, women, and children. 

The short and long-term programs provided by the Hope House serve the homeless, those battling substance abuse, and victims of domestic violence.  It has progressed to owning its own building with the capacity to sleep over 50 clients and an industrial-quality kitchen that generates meals for all who need well-prepared food. 

Frankie Garcia, program administrator, explained to the Club the criteria for admission, the requirements to stay in the program (substance free), and the future direction. 

Natalie Cunningham, Women’s Facility Director, explained the various women-focused programs and recent changes to facilitate the provision of service to women and children.
