When a young adult is placed in our program each individual receives a fully furnished apartment that is safely located and accessible to the college/university of their choice.  Each apartment is provided for the youth rent-free along with their utilities and internet service.  Once the youth graduate the program, Hope Hill allows the youth to keep all furniture and household goods provided at placement.

Hope Hill case managers work tirelessly to make sure that the youth receive the support necessary for them to live successfully on their own.  Our staff meets with the each youth weekly and is available 24 hours a day for crisis support.  Hope Hill believes that the extra support these exceptional young adults receive is what separates our program from others and leads to successful outcomes.
