The Hope Residential Academy currently offers residential placement in community-based, family-style homes. Our community residential program includes 13 family-style homes. Staff at our homes focus upon our youth’s health and safety by providing appropriate levels of supervision based upon the youth’s needs and capabilities. In late 2017, Hope fulfilled their commitment to place all of our residential services in the community. Hope believes that this model will best prepare our children to live as independently as possible and provide an unlimited number of learning opportunities.
Creating a Home
The goal of our Residential Academy is not to provide housing, but rather to create a home. As a result, our children are immersed in programs designed to both promote fun and continue learning. Our Therapeutic Recreation Program gives youth the opportunity to participate in after-school, evening and weekend programs such as Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts, cheer-leading, Special Olympics, arts and crafts, salsa dancing, school dances and much more.
