The Hope House needs your help.

The Hope House needs your help.

The facility, which serves parts of Miller and Camden counties, was hit hard by last week’s flash flooding. It’s located about a quarter mile off Highway 54 on Lakeland Road.

Runoff from three sides hit the building, causing interior damage to the entire building and much of its contents. Phoenix Restoration started work immediately, but the handful of Hope House paid staff and volunteers needs help moving all of the clothing, accessories, food and furniture out of the building so the restoration company can continue its work.

The Thrift Store is closed temporarily but the Food Pantry reopened for pre-approved clients for assistance from 9 a.m. until Friday.

The Thrift Store will not be open until all repairs and clean up are completed. Hope House is located at 40 Lakeland Road, just off Highway 54 between Lake Ozark and Eldon.

Anyone interested in helping is asked to call Janet or Cheryl at 573-365-0099.
