The mission of Hope Network is to enhance the dignity and independence of persons who have a disability and/or are disadvantaged. We believe each person is created in the image of God and therefore has an intrinsic worth and dignity. We give each person optimal opportunity to develop and function with full human dignity. We treat each person as a whole human being with physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual dimensions.
Hope Network affiliate organizations serve people who have disabilities and/or are disadvantaged. Most are 18 years of age or older with the exception of children and young adults who need rehabilitation and at-risk young adults who need vocational assistance.
We have the expertise to address many disabilities including physical, neurological, developmental, and genetic disabilities as well as Alzheimer's, head injury, mental illness, Prader-Willi Syndrome, emotional and social difficulties and many others.
We also serve people who are terminally ill, as well as people who have served time in prison, have problems with substance abuse, have experienced vocational injuries, or have other vocational barriers.
We serve people who have disabilities and/or disadvantages, but we also serve their families, friends, and others in the community who influence their lives. Hope Network and our affiliates employ highly qualified workers dedicated to a mission of service. The more than 2000 people employed at Hope Network serve from more than 130 different locations throughout Michigan. Staff members include social workers, psysiatrists, psychologists, nurses, physical therapists, occupational therapists, managers, experts in various fields of disabilities, as well as trainers, residential instructors, job coaches, chauffeurs, and other faithful, well trained and dedicated employees. Staff work together to find new and creative ways to meet the requests of our customers and their families effectively and efficiently. – less–ZoomInfo
