Home of Hope opened in 1968 thanks to the vision and determination of three mothers, Jane Hartley, Laura Cupp, and Ruth Smith, fueled by a desire as parents to have their children with developmental disabilities reach their full potential in adulthood. The guiding principles of three mothers with a dream stands true today as Home of Hope strives to help each individual attain independence, freedom to choose, opportunity, growth and happiness.

"We feel the natural progression of life is for children to grow, leave the nest, and have a life of their own. As Chris was nearing high school graduation we searched for a place where he could build independence - living with roommates, working, and making as many choices as possible in a safe and caring environment. We found that place in Home of Hope."
