In 2013, Fr. Frank approached long time HHM supporters Barbara and Arti Pflieger with an idea. What if a retail space could generate needed funds for Little Portion Friary, home of 65 young men in recovery from drug and alcohol addiction? It’s preceeds could pay for their college classes, food, utilities and transportation costs.
In August of 2019, Barbara and Arti, with help from above, found the perfect location for their store in Port Jefferson Station. They began collecting donations and held a yard sale to acquire “seed money” for the many renovations needed for the store including cleaning, painting, carpentry, plumbing and electric. All of the labor was accomplished with the talents of the young men at Little Portion Friary.
Because Hope House Ministries is all about second chances, we named the store HOPE SPRINGS ETERNAL SECOND CHANCE BOUTIQUE.
