We encourage all of our residents to continue to grow in their educational pursuits. For some, this means working to earn their High School diploma through Goodwill’s Excel Center. Others have begun post-secondary education. And after completing job readiness classes residents have earned a variety of trade and vocational certifications. When ever a resident would like tutoring help we find a volunteer who will come along side of them to help complete the journey.
Children and Youth
Hope’s Children and Youth Team pursues three goals:
1) to meet the developmental needs of children of all ages while they live at Hope;
2) to create connected and effective parents;
3) to connect families with the support they will need after leaving Hope.
Along this journey Hope provides on-site programming for infants and toddlers, facilitates enrollment of pre-schoolers in partner programs, provides academic and life support for school-age children, and supports and mentors parents as they seek to build stability and develop parenting skills.
Each resident of Hope is required to attend 6 months of Bible-based classes that walk them through topics such as boundaries & healthy relationships, sexuality, life of Christ, addiction recovery, and cultivating community. Through these classes, residents are able to learn what the Bible says about how God created us, and discuss the real issues they are facing in the healing process. In addition to these classes, every resident has a case manager that is assigned to them and offers help and guidance through the program.
