Heather’s Hope housing project coming along as planned
The new homes aimed to help women transition from incarceration to a normal life are getting closer and closer to completion.
“We’re working on getting the drywall up, now,” said Pam Dobbins, executive director of Heather’s Hope and Christian Helping Hands.
Currently, there are two housing duplexes going up in south Comanche with plans for more on the way. The ones being built will be twobedroom while future plans calls for some three-bedroom duplexes as well.
It is named after a former participant and employee Heather Phillips, who before her death gave invaluable advice and insight to the organization on what would and would not work. She herself had been in the shoes of the women who the organization was trying to help.
“When Heather joined our staff in 2015, she helped us make significant improvements to Hands of Hope Housing (the former name of Heather’s Hope),” Dobbins said. “She inspired us to open the Community House where up to five women live in a positive atmosphere of support and encouragement while getting a second chance to be reunited with their families.”
