Our Story

Life Into Action

Over the past four decades New Hope Community has grown in stature and has added many specialized programs and resources. One aspect remains constant; we combine our passion with a spirit of innovation to create environments in which people can discover their strengths, gifts and personal direction.

In 1975 on the 44 acre grounds of a former resort hotel, New Hope Community began exploring a vision of independent living for people with intellectual and other developmental disabilities who had been traditionally left without opportunity and choice. New Hope Community created a haven to cultivate a lifestyle of self-determination. The vision provided and continues to provide whatever supports necessary to be contributing and participating members of the community.

New Hope Community supports individuals with varying levels of abilities and ages in safe, comfortable homes that include apartments, condominiums, and family style homes throughout Sullivan County. Each home is supported by extensively trained Direct Support Professionals.

Through teaching, coaching, encouragement and role modeling, New Hope Community advocates for the people it supports to integrate and participate in the wider community. We offer the rare gift of connection, appreciation and friendship with remarkable individuals who have unique personalities, interests and abilities. From supporting persons on the Autism Spectrum, the medically frail, those with challenging behaviors, we marry up the supports through residential, medical, clinical and social means to ensure quality of life opportunities and lives with dignity are put into action.
