The mission of HOPE House is to offer hope and short term help to those in need, within our community, as an expression of Christ’s Love and Care!

Hope House is an emergency assistance center to help those in need who reside east of Highway KK in Osage Beach, and West of Eldon. This includes residents of North Shore, Lakeland, Lake Ozark, Bagnell, Horseshoe Bend, Kaiser, Brumley, Ulman, and Osage Beach.

Hope House is a Community Thrift Store providing clothing, toys, books, bedding, and small kitchen items to everyone in the lake area. The prices are very affordable and there are lots of knickknacks to enjoy.

Hope House is a food pantry for those residents of our service area who meet the guidelines set by the Central Missouri Food Bank of Columbia and HOPE House.

Hope House is a loving place staffed by volunteers from several area churches; it is located on the east side of Lake Ozark, off Highway 54. The hours of operation are Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday from 10-2 for your convenience.

Interesting in volunteering? As a volunteer, you can work in the HOPE House Thrift Store, helping customers, sorting and hanging clothes and non-clothing items. You could help transport clients for jobs, for medical needs, or for shopping. Automotive maintenance skills are in demand. There are opportunities to serve as one of the board members, help with fund raising projects and provide maintenance and cleaning in and around HOPE House. Riverview Baptist Church provides volunteers 1 week each month. If interested please contact the church office (573) 348-3515.

HOPE House contributors donate money for client needs (funds are paid directly to providers of services required).

HOPE House contributors donate food, personal items, clothing, knickknacks, and household items to the Food Pantry and Thrift Store.
