There are many things one can deal in. The best of them is HOPE!

Lucy Hall has helped 10,000 people. 10,000 more are at her door!

“Through raw storytelling with an honest lens, this important film illustrates what it takes to survive addiction, one woman at a time.” – Authority Magazine

Lucy is the Hope Dealer and the Founder / CEO of Mary Hall Freedom House. As the youngest of seven siblings, Lucy came from a family that battled generational addiction.

As a young girl, Lucy watched her family disappear into the worlds of alcohol and drugs, and then she too was caught in the web of generational addiction. But Lucy somehow found her way to recovery. Now, her story of self-empowerment is at the center of saving others; many others.

Lucy was living for her next high… buying, selling, stealing, all to the point of “chasing it”. It was one woman who turned Lucy’s life around; a probation officer who pushed her into treatment.

Hope Village: Finding Recovery follows Lucy Hall’s redemptive journey from addiction into the other side of recovery in which she starts one of the most successful rehabilitation programs in the country after discovering a new approach to treating women’s health and substance abuse.

Through a series of refreshing interviews, honest conversations and bold reenactments, a group of women enrolled in the transformative program share their personal journeys, depicting the emotional highs, lows, obstacles and dreams of a discarded group of Americans that deserve to take their lives back.

Mary Hall Freedom House is one of the few offering comprehensive services beyond just recovery! It is unique and provides a model for the future of recovery programs.

The community, both local and national, speaks to her work…

“Freedom House has grown since its humble beginning in one apartment to become a national leader in gender-specific treatment, recovery, housing and support services, with seven separate housing programs. All of the services are geared towards at-risk women—both with and without children. It offers outpatient and residential substance abuse treatment in addition to GED completion support, employment readiness programs, life skills guidance and parenting classes”. –

Her vision of Mary Hall Freedom House has grown from a small organization making a large impact on women and children to a large organization that continues to change the lives of many more women and children.
