We believe in a personalized approach, tailoring our services to meet the unique needs of each individual we support.

Our Services
Our support spectrum is as diverse as the people we serve. Some individuals require minimal assistance with tasks like shopping or budgeting, while others need round-the-clock support. Many fall somewhere in between. At Hope House, we adapt our services to fit the person, not the other way around.

Our direct support professionals are passionate about social justice: the right of people with disabilities to full inclusion in the community, and the right to live in one’s own home or apartment, regardless of disability. Daily tasks we take for granted like choosing when to eat dinner, what to wear, or when to go to bed, are the first steps in determining one’s own destiny. Some people may need support in reaching that goal. And that’s where you come in.
