Homes of Hope Serves 23 Adults with Intellectual Disabilities
The origin of the story began in the 1990s by local parents who were concerned for their children with disabilities. They wanted to make certain that their children would be well cared for if they were no longer able or if their child wanted more independence. Those parents also had core family values that they wanted to preserve in their children’s life. Understanding that their values may be lost in other facilities, they decided to start their own Community Integrated Living Arrangement (CILA).
What makes us different? We must begin by saying there are many noteworthy organizations who help people in need. What sets us apart from others is how involved we are with each resident’s life. We make certain that their medical, personal, spiritual, professional, and recreational needs are met. We do this in a multitude of ways including: working closely with parents/guardians, listening to resident wants and needs, utilizing external resources for those wants and needs. We provide transportation both in and out of town. We write grants, rely on donors, and fundraising events to help us support each individual we serve. Our vision is to advocate for those we serve in our homes; providing a lifetime of meaningful opportunities to achieve their dreams in an atmosphere of compassion, dignity and self-determination.
We are a licensed facility funded by the Department of Human Services (DHS).
