Address:

801 Boush Street Norfolk VA 23510 USA

Mission:

We believe neighborhoods and communities are enhanced when all the people in them, including those with disabilities, participate fully. 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 do people without disabilities. We believe that being a part of the community should not be limited by attainment of certain skills. Helping people achieve true citizenship requires all of us 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:

Hope house foundation is a not-for-profit organization that provides supportive living services to 122 adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities in cities throughout south hampton roads. Hope house foundation is the only organization in virginia that supports persons with intellectual and developmental disabilities living exclusively in their own homes. Hope house foundation is dedicated to the philosophy of supported living; where people with disabilities control their own lives and make everyday choices about how they live, who they live with, who supports them, and what level of support they desire. Our services are based on the conviction that people with disabilities have the right to live in their own homes and have control over their day-to-day lives, just as do people without disabilities. Every person we serve lives in their own apartment or home and receives the exact level of support they need to engage in everyday life. Most of the people we serve live in small apartment buildings we own, where they live side-by-side with other citizens, as friends, neighbors and coworkers.

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.
