Arising Hope provides a safe place of love, healing and empowerment to victims of domestic violence. They offer safe emergency shelter and housing; as well as many other resources and services that assist survivors, their children and their pets into a life free from fear and abuse.
“It’s encouraging to know that there are organizations in our community providing assistance to victims of domestic abuse,” said John Ward, president of Applewood Plumbing Heating & Electric. “We’re honored to be able to help Arising Hope.”
Arising Hope was founded by a survivor of domestic violence who was committed to helping give hope to other victims who found themselves in a similar situation. Desperate to assist in ending the effects of domestic violence; the president and founder started Arising Hope in a single family, three bedroom and two bathroom house in Denver, Colorado.
