Hopewell in the Community
In high school and college, students often earn service hours when they donate their time and talent to serve their community. At Hopewell, this commitment to service is very similar. Hopewell residents dedicate themselves both to helping each other and serving the local communities.
Our resident community outreach program offers a broad array of opportunities.
Church/Religious Activities. Hopewell residents help local churches and congregations whether or not they personally are a part of the specific religious denomination needing help. As one resident put it, we want to help people no matter who they are.
Volunteerism. Candace Carlton, Hopewell’s Quality Improvement and Compliance Director can be contacted when the community calls for help.
Amish Neighbors. The wonderful Ohio area where Hopewell lives keeps us in close contact with our warm and caring Amish neighbors. We all are good neighbors here to help each other whenever we can.
Music. The wonderfully talented residents who come to Hopewell bring their music. We have beautiful voices, emotive instrumentalists and song that echo through our halls. This music is shared with concerts at the farm and during the year off-campus.
Art and Craft Shows. Hopewell not only offers crafts at its Farm & Craft Market, it lets residents produce amazing art that can be used to support fund-raisers in our nearby communities. Communities have come to enjoy access to the market. There, numerous crafts and farm produce are available for purchase at a very good price. Even the famous Hopewell maple syrup can be found on display.
With mental illness, creative talent often finds expression at Hopewell. We provide a safe and caring-environment where our residents can spread their wings. These talents and a desire to serve the community bring Hopewell closer to our neighbors in every direction.Back to Blog
