Holding Out HELP (HOH) is focused on providing full-service care to people from a polygamous background. The HOH team and trusted volunteers have worked diligently to understand the distinct needs of this population. HOH provides housing, food, clothing, counseling, education and other services aiding in each client’s transition to reach self-sufficiency.
It is estimated that there are 40,000-100,000 polygamists living in the Western United States, Canada and Mexico, with a majority of them residing in or around Utah.
Each group, family and individual has a unique story – but most of the individuals HOH serve have faced forms of bondage and tragedy. When someone leaves or is kicked out, they often experience loss of family, financial ruin, feeling judged, abandonment and loneliness. HOH is a safe place for them, providing a loving and caring body of people to extend hope for a new
and bright future.
