The Betsy Ann Ross House of Hope is a home for in-need, homeless, or in-transition female veterans. Our mission is to assist women veterans achieve self-sufficiency in a safe, home-like atmosphere. We are a 501(c)(3) nonprofit.
- Since incorporation, we have raised over $400,000 to purchase and renovate a large house with 4 bathrooms, 8 bedrooms, a spacious kitchen, dining room and a warm inviting living room. This money has also allowed us to develop living skills programs for our residents, maintain the household and provide assistance to other veterans in the community.
- We have hosted various fundraisers over the past 3 years including a bowling tournament, disc golf tournament, spaghetti supper and a 1920’s Mystery at the Mansion at the Viles House in Augusta. We have more on the horizon; a “polar bear dip”, our annual bowling tournament, doubles disc golf, a “purse auction and tea” at the Viles House and another Mystery at the Mansion event.
