Issues: Civil Rights, Disabilities, Human Services

Location: 801 Boush St Ste 302 Norfolk VA 23510 USA

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.
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.

Hope House is a pillar in the community. They help so many with disabilities and needs while providing independence for those they assist. In times when so many are doing without and unable to provide for themselves, Hope House gives many hope and stability.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

seeing them assist those in my community.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

find more ways to provide financial assistance for them to be able to help more people.

I was able to hear Lynne, the Executive Director, speak about this phenomenal organization at our Partners in Policymaking. In an incredibly engaging presentation, Lynne described an organization that seeks to truly "include" people with disabilities in the community. They live independently with supports- but they get to live a "real life."
It truly gives me a light at the end of the tunnel for my visions for my son.
