Project H.O.P.E. House


Project H.O.P.E. House stands for Helping Open People’s Eyes, it can also stand for Hang On — Pain Ends.

Project H.O.P.E. House was formed to help serve the Barrington area in suicide prevention. Their mission is to help those who are struggling with thoughts of suicide and give them a safe space to open up and know how valuable and cared about they are.

In 2018, Ray Paigentini created Project H.O.P.E. House to structure a program where we can assess people at suicide risk and get them the help they need.

Honor Garden

The Dylan Balogh Honor Garden was created in October 2019 to give those who are struggling an area of respite, repose, and reflection. Project H.O.P.E. is honoring those who have gone before us, anyone that you feel has made a positive impact in your life, or any significant life event that brings you a sense of joy, safety, and peace. Life’s encounters are all teaching and learning experiences and Dylan’s Honor Garden at Project H.O.P.E. House is here to provide the sanctuary to give honor to those people and experiences that we cherish. May their memories be a blessing.
