Spring has finally arrived in NE Ohio. Like spring, Hope Homes Foundation is blossoming with ideas and new programs to serve its homes and the community.
First, a summary of where we are as a sustainable nonprofit organization. Hope continues to be in operation today. We have 17 properties in Summit, Stark, Wayne and Warren Counties of Ohio. This includes Hope Center in Stow, which leases space to two separate day center providers and houses our administrative offices.
Our homes currently have a residential capacity of 59, and we are proud to report 57 of the units are filled for a 97% occupancy rate. Hope Center tenants REM Ohio and People First Day Program and Transportation serve approximately 40-50 individuals with disabilities.
We would like to welcome Marianne Senvisky as our new Business Development Manager. Her duties will center around fundraising, donor relationships, event planning, and developing new opportunities to serve people with special needs.
Hope Homes is now a Medicaid-approved provider for the Ohio Departments of Aging, Job and Family Services, and Developmental Disabilities. Specifically, Hope Homes has applied for Minor Home Repair and Modification service provision. It is our goal to assist and support caregivers of individuals with developmental/other disabilities and older adults to “age in place” in their home with assistance from our Hope Renovations program to ensure a safe and accessible house.
In Fall 2017, Hope Homes received a $48,000 Capital Residential Renovation Grant from the Ohio Department of Developmental Disabilities to update our Canton properties. Repairs are 75% complete and include the replacement of exterior doors, windows, roofing and HVAC systems. There are eight individuals from ICFMRs who recently became residents in these community homes.
Please consider joining the board of directors and staff in our 55th Anniversary Circle in support of Hope Homes Foundation’s ongoing mission to provide safe, accessible and affordable housing for people with developmental disabilities and other special needs.
Be sure to follow us on social media as we celebrate our anniversary this year and build Hope for the future!
