Our Hope is not connected to and does not advocate for any specific religion. We do, however encourage our clients to focus on enhancing their spirituality, in whatever way has meaning for them. We define spirituality as a belief in the way we are connected to others and something bigger than ourselves. We do not define what that belief “should” be, as we believe that is a very personal question that each woman must answer for herself. For some women, the answer is found through religion; for other women, the answer is found through other practices, philosophies, or disciplines. For some it is a private journey, for others it is based in community. Whatever their spiritual beliefs, we support women in developing in their spirituality and have opportunities each week for women to attend and practice spiritual activities, meetings, or services in the community or on their own.
