Integral to Hopewell's Outcomes/Research Program is oversight by the Performance Management Committee. This Board-designated committee is comprised of members of the Board of Directors as well as leaders in the mental health field in Northeast Ohio. 

Purpose and mission of the Performance Management Committee

The purpose of the Performance Management Committee is to identify and quantify the impact of Hopewell's programming on the achievement of Hopewell’s goals in order to:

  • Stimulate improvement of the programming toward greater effectiveness;
  • Enlighten present and future residents and their families as to what realistic benefits they can expect from residency at Hopewell;
  • Guide the Board in its oversight activities; and 
  • Provide data by which referral resources and granting agencies and other relevant groups may accurately understand the impact that Hopewell's programming can have, and clarify the nature of the severe mental illnesses and the effective change agent processes by which their pathological impact may be corrected.

The mission is to provide oversight and support of the outcome research activities of Hopewell, such as to implement effectively the vision of the Committee.
