Who We Serve
Hope House Foundation supports adults with a primary diagnosis of a developmental or intellectual disability, including Down Syndrome, autism spectrum disorders, traumatic brain injury, Fetal Alcohol Syndrome, and more.
Many of the people we support also have physical conditions such as cerebral palsy, hearing or visual impairment, and diabetes. Often, these conditions require the use of wheelchairs, adaptive equipment, and assistive technology.
In addition, many have emotional issues such as depression, schizophrenia, obsessive-compulsive disorder, anxiety, and Post-Traumatic Stress Syndrome.
And as people with disabilities get older, they’re subject to the same age-related difficulties that plague the rest of the population, including heart disease, diabetes, cancer, arthritis, and Alzheimer’s.
It can be daunting. But at Hope House, we’re up for the challenge. More important, we're in it for the long haul. So once we start supporting someone, we will continue to do so.
Even if their behaviors are suddenly out of control. Even if they receive a challenging medical diagnosis. Even if they now require more care than they have in the past. Even if a parent or guardian passes away. No matter what, we can almost always find a way to work things out.
While some of the people we support just need occasional help with shopping or budgeting, others may require support around the clock. And still others are somewhere in the middle. That’s why at Hope House, we adapt our services to the individual – not the other way around.
