HOPE HAVEN’S MISSION IS TO ENSURE THAT CHILDREN AND FAMILIES REALIZE THEIR FULL POTENTIAL BY PROVIDING SPECIALIZED SERVICES AND INDIVIDUALIZED EDUCATIONAL OPPORTUNITIES.
INDIVIDUALS SERVED BY HOPE HAVEN WILL BE MORE INDEPENDENT, EDUCATED AND ENGAGED IN COMMUNITY LIFE.
At least 20% of children and youth under age 21 have a developmental, psychological, behavioral or academic achievement problem requiring specialized services. Half of these children have multiple issues.
When a child is diagnosed with an intellectual and/or developmental disability, it means much more than the anxiety of an unclear future. It also means the worry of a changed reality, the dread of untenable costs and a complicated bureaucracy. Very often there is hopelessness. That’s why there is Hope Haven.
Families come to Hope Haven when they have tried other places that don’t fit. They have tried private and public school, as well as rehabilitation clinics and other resources. We take children who have been told they can’t learn and show them they can. And they do learn. We take children who are dealing with mental and social issues and help restore and strengthen their lives. Through a combination of educational and clinical services, Hope Haven serves children with special needs whether they are educational, emotional or developmental.
For the majority of our clients, the challenges will be lifelong. From their first steps to their first job we are here for the whole journey. Hope Haven provides a continuum of care to help overcome as many barriers as possible, enabling individuals to learn, self-regulate, and gain the self reliance and confidence to become productive.
