Because our purpose is to help adults with mental illness to lead a more satisfying, self-reliant, and independent life, we begin working through a transition to a more independent setting beginning with our first conversations with potential residents and their families.
Once a resident is at Hopewell, we develop together individual plans that identify specific concrete goals for discharge. As these goals are met and discharge comes closer, we work extensively with the resident and resident’s family to identify the best next setting and its required supports.
One option among many is Club Hope, a transitional program for residents moving from Hopewell's residential therapeutic program to community living in Northeast Ohio. It is designed for people have a serious mental illness, have graduated from the residential program and are living successfully on their own or with family, but might benefit from involvement in a structured daily program at Hopewell's therapeutic farm.
Members of Club Hope participate Monday through Friday from 8:00 am to 6:00 pm in the same daily schedule as Hopewell residents. People may sign up for three, four or five days a week. Transportation is not included in the daily fee but can be provided within a limited radius of Hopewell's location in Mesopotamia, Ohio for an extra charge.
As part of this transitional program, mental health treatment such as psychiatry services, medication and medication management are not included. Club members are given a lock-box and key for storing their personal items and medications during the day.
