Welcome to Homes Of Hope (HoH)

Our History Begins Here

Homes of Hope (HoH) is a nonprofit organization that has been serving individuals with intellectual disabilities in the Bloomington-Normal community for over 20 years. HoH was established in the early 90s by a group of loving parents who were concerned about the future of their children.

 These parents began wondering who would care for their beloved children once they were no longer able. In 1995, HoH opened their first home or CILA (Community Integrated Living Arrangement) giving four people the chance to have independence, a home to call their own, community inclusion options and much more. Today, HoH has 23 residents and five homes in Normal. Our aim is to maintain a safe and independent living environment for our residents.

This includes 24 hour care provided by our compassionate, well-trained staff. We promote guided decision-making, self-advocacy and community involvement. We encourage and assist individuals in achieving their goals, dreams and spiritual choices.
We strive to tailor our services to meet the unique abilities, strengths, skills, goals, desires and needs of each person we serve. HoH is a nurturing environment that acknowledges the distinctive worth of each individual we serve while being sensitive to differing viewpoints.
