 Lannon stone mansion in Astor Park

The home of the 2013 Showcase is located in the Lannon stone mansion in Astor Park. This beautiful home, built in 1926 by the Baum Family, is one of the most architecturally significant period homes in Brown County. It was also owned by Otto Kaap and his wife for 35 years. Their love of music theatre and travel can be felt throughout the home. The Lutsey family then lived in the home for 35 years and seamlessly did the extensive addition and rennovation in the late 1980s. The Chandler/Blues (current owners) are only the 4th family to have lived in this incredible home. This residence is a true work of art that has been meticulously cared for and maintained over the years.

With Your Support

We can help provide case management services that enable residents to set long- and short-term goals related to becoming independent and healthy. Shelter residents will receive education, parenting classes, job readiness training and time management counseling. House of Hope maintains innovative collaborations with other community agencies and volunteers who are experts in their fields and provide on-site services including: GED tutoring, childcare, healthcare, budget counseling and debt management, renter's education and fair housing seminars, domestic violence education and counseling.

By providing these young mothers the safety of shelter, the House of Hope is saving them from having to make choices that would continue to put both themselves and their children in harm's way.

The House of Hope helps women break the cycle of poverty and improve their quality of life.
