In 2002, a young woman named Angelica Rosales answered the call to open a pregnancy help center. Angie had always been passionate about helping women in unexpected pregnancies, because her own mother, Rose, pregnant at the age of 42, had been told to terminate her pregnancy since she also had a serious heart condition. However, against all odds, Rose chose to fight for her daughter’s life. Knowing she owed her life to her mom’s courageous choice, Angie wanted to help others in similar situations. With the help of her sister Kathy, the Rosales and Santos family, and a group of passionate friends, the doors of House of Hope opened in 2002 and later became a limited medical facility in 2007. Nydia Correa joined the team in 2006 and became the new Executive Director in 2010.
