Home of Hope Community Supports enable people with disabilities to have the opportunity to live in their own home or in their family’s home. Support services are tailored to the individual’s abilities and needs and may range from a few hours to 24 hours a day. Staff members are trained to work with individuals with varying degrees of need from mild to profound developmental disabilities, those with dual diagnosis, and those who are medically fragile. Staff provides support and training to individuals in many different areas such as cooking, cleaning, money management, self-care, laundry and recreation. Transportation is also provided to individuals to take care of all their needs including work and recreation.
