Programs:

There are the differences between merely living in the community – and having a life in the community. That’s why Hope House created our Community Support Program. It’s designed to increase opportunities for the people we support to take an active role within their communities, and to take existing relationships to deeper, more meaningful levels.

Here’s how it works: each team’s Community Support Coordinator works with the people we support to determine individual goals, needs, and preferences. Based on those, the coordinator and the individual work together on a plan to increase participation in events, clubs, and the community overall – which includes people with and without disabilities.

Mission:
We believe life in neighborhoods and communities is enhanced when people with disabilities are included in all aspects. Our services are based on the conviction that people with disabilities should live in their own homes and have control over their day-to-day lives just as people without disabilities are afforded. We believe that being a part of the community should not be limited by attainment of certain skills. Assisting individuals achieve true citizenship requires us all to make the concepts of freedom and choice a reality; we do this through our services, our participation in our community and within our hearts...each day, every day.
