University of Illinois Students Visit Hopewell

Colleen Welder, RN C Director of Program Services writes: Hopewell recently hosted a group of 8 students from the University of Illinois. The students arrived on Sunday January 12th for their alternative winter break experience volunteering on the farm.

During the week they were here, the students worked on maintenance projects under the direction of the Hopewell Facility Director, Rick Polch. Their main project was painting the entry way and hallways in two of our cottages. The students did a great job with this and had a rewarding and positive experience at the same time. Their week of service ended with a nature walk along our trails led by Program Service Supervisor, Jack Childers. Hopewell plans to host a second group of alternative spring breakers in March of this year.
