Our Story


The Concept

Hope Shack began when the need for a place for people to meet and talk out personal issues was recognized within online social communities.  The same dynamics of a real world community exist in online communities, and as the lines between our online and offline identities becomes more blurred, our personal lives begin to show through in our online interactions.  We are real people, with real situations, real hurts and real problems.   Members of our online communities are looking for hope in the same way that members of our offline community are, and they needed a place to find it online.   Learn More about the Hope Shack vision HERE.

The Team

We’re not professional counselors.  We are just a few folks that care about people.  The only promise we can make is that we’ll listen without judging you, we’ll accept what you bring us, and offer whatever encouragement and perspective that we can.

We believe your story matters.  We believe you matter.   You are not alone.
