Hope Springs provides emergency housing and services for individuals and families escaping domestic abuse.

We help them reach their goals of self-sufficiency and independence through programs offered in a supportive and Christ-centered environment. We work to prevent domestic violence by raising awareness in our community.

We have a great team who values working together for a common cause. This important work is rewarding and challenging at the same time. If you have a passion for helping men, women and children who are survivors of domestic violence and would enjoy working in a supportive, Christ-centered environment, explore careers at Hope Springs.

Hope Springs offers a variety of internships. Students work with our staff to support residents in a variety of ways. And, as they do so, they gain valuable experience in their fields of study. Because interns use the skills they’re learning in the classroom in this real-life setting, they gain confidence and experience that will serve them well down the road. For more information, contact Toni McGowen at or 765-764-5212

A national criminal records check will be conducted on each staff member or volunteer prior to employment. Criminal records which include convictions for sex offenses, crimes against persons, child abuse or neglect or other violent crimes will result in elimination from consideration. A total criminal history will be evaluated to determine if there is a pattern of criminal behavior that would detract from the mission of Hope Springs. If the criminal history reveals any non-violent offense dating back one year and/or the person is on probation, consideration will be given on a case-by-case basis.
