Meet the Wagners

Sharon Wagner House of Hope Founder South Georgia

In 2005, having experienced the devastation and effects of alcoholism, addiction and abuse personally and in their own family, Rick and Sharon Wagner began to help others to find hope and freedom. In a bold move that, at the time, just felt like the right thing to do, the Wagners moved out of their home and into a hotel in order to give five women in recovery their home.

They gave the first financial gift, Teen Challenge donated the curriculum and House of Hope was born!

In 2006, three families donated 10 acres with a farmhouse making room for 12 residents to be served. In 2010, three re-entry homes were purchased and remodeled by an amazing team of local donors.

Since then scores of struggling women have been served and the House of Hope has a documented success rate of 82% after 5 years. This, in a world where clinical models at best claim a 20% success rate after only 1 year. For over 13 years now the House of Hope has consistently opened its heart and home to women who have no where else to turn.
