Navigating the Mental Health Crisis in Young Adults

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 38 adults in four residences at the farm. 

Campus Residences

Residents on our campus enjoy a comfortable, home-like environment in the Main House, Hand House or two Cottages. Here they relax, read, socialize and rest.

The Main House

Many of Hopewell's activities take place in the Main House, formerly called "The Inn." As well as resident housing, the Main House includes the dining room, administrative and nursing offices and the education center.

The Farm

Key to recovery at Hopewell is the work on the farm. From animal care to gardening, residents are involved in all aspects of farm life. This meaningful work builds confidence and connects people to each other and to the earth.

Sugar House

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 was constructed in 2016.

The David Cutler Conservatory

The Conservatory provides a state-of-the-art greenhouse for Hopewell’s nature studies program, a year-round meditative garden and a conference center.

Hoop House

A place for Hopewell residents to nurture seedlings for the gardens, connect with nature, gain confidence and build vocational skills.

The Gardens

Residents build self-esteem while working together to help grow fresh vegetables. The vegetables are served as part of nutritious meals on the farm, and are sold in season the Farm & Craft Market.

The Campus

Using the power of nature, meaningful work, therapeutic community and a highly-skilled, caring staff, Hopewell’s program treats the whole person: mind, body and spirit.

Mesopotamia Township

Hopewell is located on 300 acres in rural Mesopotamia (approximately 60 miles southeast of Cleveland) -- the heart of Ohio's Amish country.
