Your Place at HOPE Center

HOPE Center is a psychiatric rehabilitation center. We are a place where people come to learn to live their lives as wholly, creatively, and productively as possible. We rely upon our members’ talents, skills, and dreams in order to function. We are a place of opportunity, in which all of our participants, both staff members and group members, give and receive from each other in an atmosphere of dignity and respect.

As a member of HOPE Center, you will work side-by-side with staff and group members toward the accomplishment of personal goals, and to help HOPE Center operate. Staff members will always ask for your assistance, and to share your skills and talents.

HOPE Center strives to be a healthy network of people who care about one another and assist one another in achieving goals and aspirations. We are here together.

Let’s work together to make ourselves and HOPE Center the best we can be.
