"As a resident, Hope Hill gave me a safe place to heal from all the things that had hurt me. As a counselor here, I have the opportunity to do that for someone else. It's not just a job. It's part of who I am.” - Kayla
Want to know how you can contribute to the impact?
Are you interested in helping a child in need, but not sure you can devote yourself full-time to foster care parenting? If you've been thinking about fostering but you're nervous about it, providing respite foster care at first may be a way to test the waters. You can choose when you're available to take in children so the schedule can be very flexible—it's up to you.
Respite care usually takes place over a weekend, and it rarely lasts more than two weeks.
Get an idea of what works best in your home before you take in long-term placement.
Get to know other foster parents while also providing them much-needed restorative time.
Our location offers privacy and safety, in surroundings of natural beauty, with a limited number of residents at any given time. Experience has taught us that keeping our groups small and intimate results in dramatically better outcomes for sustainable healing and personal growth. Ten to twelve adolescents live in the same cottage and spend all day together—attending class, eating meals, and participating in activities as a group.
Each cottage includes a community room, bedrooms, bathrooms, showers, a kitchen, laundry room, and an office for the counselors.
Group therapy, life skills activities, homework and free time all take place in a cottage community room during afternoons and weekends. There is also plenty of outdoor space for recreation activities, group activities, picnics, etc.
