Our History

Sara Trollinger, Founder and President of House of Hope Orlando, taught school for 25 years and taught behind bars at the Orange County Juvenile Detention Center. There, Sara witnessed firsthand the revolving doors for teenagers in the social service system. They would come and go, repeating negative behaviors time and again. She saw the need for these troubled teens to understand the life-changing principles based on God’s Word.
