TreeHouse Hope


TreeHouse is on a mission to end hopelessness among teens. Through safe, grace-based environments and one-to-one mentoring, teens build resiliency, form healthy relationships, establish positive coping skills, and actively plan for their futures. Transformation happens from the inside out as teens come to believe they are lovable, capable, and worthwhile. Our vision is for every teen to be rooted in the living hope of Jesus—unleashing untold potential in themselves and their communities.

TreeHouse culture includes a strong commitment to diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) work, and staff are grounded in the core values of GRACE (Growth, Relationships, Authenticity, Community, Empowerment). Both determine how we build healthy relationships with diverse populations of teens, alumni, donors, colleagues, volunteers, network sites, and the general public. TreeHouse is growing to lead the nation as a training and equipping organization, currently serving more than 3,000 teens annually across more than 50 sites in 10 states.


By God’s grace, TreeHouse staff live out Christian faith and values in ways that are consistent with the teachings of Scripture, and by participating in a fellowship of believers for spiritual enrichment, encouragement, support, and accountability.
