Summer Solstice 2019

Summer Solstice 2019 Thank you for supporting Hopewell Friday, June 14, 2019. Learn More

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.

We select from our complete set of nature, work, community and clinical offerings those that are most helpful to each residents’ particular overall journey with us, and to the specific challenges a resident faces any given day. Schedules change a bit each month, but the general structure remains essentially the same. Weekends are less structured and often include off-campus trips, including opportunities to attend worship services.
