A Person-Centered Resource Network

networkHope Homes is an advocate for people with developmental disabilities and other special needs who may experience difficulty in as self-care, language, mobility, learning, self-direction, independent living or self-sufficiency. Our care plans begin by placing our clients at the center of a resource network so that they can achieve a satisfying way of life.

We realize the importance of planning for ourselves - setting goals and taking the steps necessary for achieving them. We do the same thing for clients. Persons with developmental disabilities are encouraged to be involved in developing their own individual service plan. Hope Homes believes that best individualized plans are inclusive and are designed in relationship with family, friends, human service agencies, government, churches, and communities. Person centered planning is designed to give each person choices and the flexibility to meet their own unique needs.

An assessment aids the person and family in logically thinking through the life planning process. In some instances the individual may have a specific need. For example, the need may be to provide trained staff to teach various skills within the home, such as meal preparation, laundry or improving self help skills. Other individuals may want to establish a more comprehensive individual service plan.

clientsThe individual and/or family may choose to complete this process with the assistance of Hope Homes. The role of Hope Homes will vary depending on the request of the person and/or family members and other relationships.

Traditionally, civic, governmental, and faith communities have been partners in health and human services. Hope Homes collaborates with programs whose primary purpose is to provide care, housing, assistance and advocacy. We believe that individuals are best served when they are able to benefit by their own personal relationships and the relationships that the community can cooperatively offer to provide support. This page lists some examples of our relationships and cooperative resources.
