Ray and Lisa Stribling

Ray and Lisa Stribling, the founders of Hopecity, bring a deeply personal understanding to their work at the drug rehab and community center they established to serve the poor and homeless. Both Ray and Lisa have navigated the challenging paths of addiction and poverty firsthand, experiences that inspired their commitment to aiding others facing similar struggles.

After turning their lives around, the Striblings dedicated themselves to creating a supportive environment that not only addresses the physical aspects of addiction but also fosters a sense of community and belonging among the most vulnerable. Their past experiences have endowed them with a unique empathy and an effective approach to rehabilitation, making Hopecity a beacon of hope and a model of effective community-based support. Their leadership is characterized by compassion, resilience, and a profound understanding of the needs of their clientele, driving the success of their programs and the recovery of their participants.
