A Place to Call Home
Hopewell House is not simply a residential group home for adults. We offer a supportive community to those who find it difficult to achieve inclusion in society because of mental illness. Our approach to mental health housing means that our residents are valued, accepted, and supported in real and tangible relationships while maintaining their independence.
In our group homes, residents live with other adults facing similar mental health challenges such as schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, or depression. Behavioral Health Coaches help maintain a home environment and provide support through on-going activities that guide individuals as they strive to live independently in the local neighborhood and surrounding community.
Each of our homes functions separately but as a part of a single community. We encourage our residents to socialize, attend classes, and participate in recreation, excursions, and other activities that interest them. We encourage community life over the campus-like setting available at other programs. Campus settings where all services are provided on-site reduces individual choice and often times can be isolating. Our job at Hopewell House is to structure individual resident’s environments to ensure success in the community and with personal goals.
