Annual Reports

At Hopewell, structured work, involvement in a community focused on healing, medication management and therapy give residents a sense of belonging and well-being they have never before experienced. Hopewell's approach to care creates a connection to the earth and each other, a dependable and safe daily structure and opportunities to experience success.

Residents are encouraged, but not required, to participate in daily activities. Schedules change each month, but the general structure remains essentially the same. Weekends are less structured and often include off-campus trips, including opportunities to attend local church services on Sunday.
