Each year during Hopewell's Summer Solstice benefit, generous guests "raise their paddles" to support our mission to help people with serious mental illness find hope and healing. This year's Fund-a-Need will support a new family home for recently graduated residents.
Joel Budzar, our guest speaker at last year's Summer Solstice, is a proud graduate of the Hopewell program who is now an instrumental member of the team renovating the new family home.
My name is Joel Budzar. I was a resident at Hopewell for 10 months and it has been my honor to be a part of this year’s annual fund campaign.
I wanted to tell you a little bit about what the farm means to me and how Hopewell helps people recover from mental illness....
Local home to provide independent living
Hopewell recently purchased a home located on the Mesopotamia commons to use as supervised, independent living housing.
With this new transitional house, Hopewell will be able to offer residnts increased independence and vocational training. Residents will participate in Hopewell's regular programming during the day and be involved in the broader community of Mesopotamia through work, volunteer porjects or continuing education.
