Regardless of whether the unfaithful spouse is supportive, unsupportive, or gone, we want you to feel hope again. Whole again. Home again.
Harboring Hope is specifically designed for betrayed spouses by professional counselors who are also betrayed spouses. We know the pain. We have been there. We want you to know that you are not alone, you are not crazy, and you are not destined to grieve forever. Harboring Hope can help you discover what you need to heal and help you find hope in your circumstance. We want to rebuild your confidence and give you room to thrive.
“The pain of infidelity is overwhelming and all-consuming. Harboring Hope is a gift. For me, Harboring Hope is people who truly understand my pain and what I'm living through. Without them, it feels as if I would have no hope.” - A, Armenia
This faith-based course joins you with other betrayed spouses in a private small group of all men or all women. The group communicates via a weekly telephone conference call as well as an online forum that is accessible 24/7. Your small group is a safe, intimate place where you receive support from others while on your path to recovery as you work through the 13 week curriculum together.

You’ll also gain access to Harboring Hope library of past Q&A sessions.
“Harboring Hope provided me the opportunity to receive the excellent support and resources I desperately needed to heal. It literally provided me a way out of the isolation that the despair of infidelity can bring and into the fellowship of hope found through shared experiences of recovery.” – L, New Mexico

“When I joined HH, I thought I was the only person experiencing the pain I was going through. Then I was connected with 5 other guys from Alaska to Austin. All of a sudden, I heard my story through their mouths. The same hurt, anger and frustrations were all expressed by these men. I'm so thankful for not only Harboring Hope, but for the other men that were able to work with me through our betrayal. I wasn't alone in my pain, these men were here to support me and mourn with me. Thanks for bringing hope back into my life.” -Jonathan, Arkansas
“Harboring Hope helped facilitate healing and personal growth during the most painful time in my life. I have gone from numbness, deep sorrow, and sadness to living with hope and confidence.” –M, Texas
