At Hopewell, people heal and grow within a safe, caring environment.
Hopewell is a residential therapeutic farm community for adults with mental illness. Founded in 1993 by Cleveland native, Clara T. Rankin, Hopewell accepted its first residents in 1996. Hopewell is the only residential therapeutic farm community in Ohio, and one of only a handful in the United States. We are able to serve 44 adults, with housing in four residences at the farm and at Lyman House, our nearby family home.
The Farm & Craft Market
The Farm & Craft Market provides opportunities for residents to learn vocational skills and for the public to purchase Hopewell-produced vegetables, eggs, maple syrup and crafts. Residents also produce cutting boards, bird houses and customized signs in the Market's wood shop.
Each spring, residents tap more than 1,000 maple trees. Using a team of horses led by our Amish Farm Director, they use old-fashioned methods to boil 17,000 gallons of sap to produce 200 gallons of award-winning maple syrup. Thanks to generous donors, a new Sugar House will be constructed in 2015.
