The services provided by A New Hope consist of an integrated array of individually tailored services and supports for eligible participants. These services and supports are designed by the participant’s care team, with input of the participant, to assist in residing successfully in the participant’s own home or with their families.
The services and supports furnished are aimed at assisting the individual to acquire, retain, or improve the ability to reside as independently as possible in the home and community. This may include training in self-direction, money management including training or assistance in handling personal finances; daily living skills including routine housekeeping, meal preparation, dressing, personal hygiene, mobility, accessing and using public transportation, and independent travel; behavior shaping and management including training and assistance in appropriate expressions of emotions or desires, assertiveness, advocation for self, and acquisition of socially appropriate behaviors.
Our paraprofessional staff are overseen by Qualified Intellectual Disability Professionals (QIDPs) that monitor the treatment and interactions between staff and clients. Staff are directed to interact and approach clients in the manner that best suits their needs for learning the skills they desire to acquire.
