Chad Chad left Hopewell in 2017 after working through his schizoaffective bipolar diagnosis. Two years later, he received his master’s degree in journalism from Ohio University. Currently, Chad is working towards a law degree at Case Western Reserve University, and plans to graduate in May, 2024. He made the Dean’s List for fall semester 2022!
Chad said, “I am drawn to community development, public policy, and land use laws. Access to affordable housing is a priority in the Cleveland area and I would love to use my degree to help move that forward.” He spent this past summer working with the Cuyahoga County legal department writing memos for the county government and answering a wide variety of legal questions.
In his spare time, Chad attends AA meetings and organizes them at several locations around the city. He also satisfies his love of music by visiting Beachland Ballroom and other local music venues.
Chad looks back to his Hopewell days saying, “At Hopewell, I learned to keep my life together: sleep, medicine compliancy, structured daily schedules and therapy. Without Hopewell, I would be nowhere.”back to success stories
