Your Adult Child Deserves Independence. 

Do you worry about:

  • Lack of housing options that meet your loved one’s needs?
  • Your adult child being isolated and lonely?
  • Your family’s future when you’re gone?

Homes Giving Hope is a Christ-Centered organization providing the opportunity for adults with unique abilities to live independently.

We believe that God cares for each individual and asks us to do the same. We actively serve our residents by creating an environment where they can feel God’s love, grow in their relationship with Jesus, and experience the fullness of life. Through house devotions, grace-filled conversations, and living our core values our residents will know they are loved by God.

Live with Peers

Residents live with others and build peer relationship skills. Residential Assistant Onsite.

Build Skills

All residents are encouraged to help with household chores, communicate with roommates, and problem solve together.

Live an Engaging Life

Life is spent either working or volunteering in the community and enjoying evening meals with roommates and planning house events.

We get it.

Finding independent housing is difficult.

Raising an adult child with unique abilities can be a lonely and challenging road. It’s as if they are stuck between living in a group home and residing with you forever. With over 100 collective years of experience with the special needs population, we have seen first hand the lack of opportunity for adults with unique abilities and their families to experience independence. 

There isn’t a model that serves high functioning adults, UNTIL NOW…

Testimonials From

Resident and Family

“While we always knew our daughter had the ability to become independent and move out on her own, it was something we were very apprehensive about. From the moment we stepped through the doors at Homes Giving Hope we knew that God had opened doors for her and we were immediately put at ease knowing that if it was His will it would all work out. 6 weeks later we have seen K’s confidence level skyrocket and will forever be grateful for this opportunity”.

“I was excited to move out of my parent’s house and into my own place with roommates.  It did not take me long to adjust because I love the beautiful home and being able to work on my independent living skills. I am doing my own laundry, house chores, keeping my room clean, and becoming more social. My family isn’t very far away, so they are able to come to visit and help with taking me to work…”

Independence is within reach

At Homes Giving Hope we know your adult child with intellectual/developmental differences wants the same experience of living independently just like everyone else. And perhaps, you’re looking ahead and know in order to plan for the next season of life, you need housing where your son/daughter can live and engage in the community.

The problem is, there are no housing options for a high-functioning adult that needs light support. It feels as if he/she is in the space between group homes and living at your house the rest of their lives. We believe it’s wrong that there are no options for loved ones like yours to experience a life of engagement and independence.

We understand you’ve been on this journey alone and feel like there isn’t any hope. Our team of education specialists has a combined experience of over 100 years working with special needs individuals. Together, we see firsthand the challenges families face as they look for housing opportunities for their adult children with unique abilities.

This is why at Homes Giving Hope we provide supported independent living in quality homes that enable our residents to live a life with their peers and be a part of the community.
