Welcome to Point of Hope
Point of Hope offers specialized facility based programs for persons with severe and profound intellectual disabilities (mental retardation), autism, ABI/TBI, neurological impairments and those with special medical needs. Each individual’s program is designed to meet their unique needs, interests and abilities. Treatment plans are tailored to each individual’s goals based on the recommendations prescribed in their Essential Lifestyle Plan (ELP) and on their personal choices.
Point of Hope’s Day Programs allow participants to experience their interests in personal life skill activities through educational, vocational, leisure and recreational interests. These activities include but are not limited to: music therapy, arts and crafts, media viewing, games (board, card, Wii), sensory stimulation activities and activities designed to maintain and develop communication and fine and gross motor skills.

The Point of Hope Difference
Point of Hope has staff and administrators who care for your loved one as if they are family. Being small is our strength; we have a 5 to 1 consumer to staff ratio which allows us to get to know our consumers and their physical, emotional, and cognitive needs. We can also accommodate consumers who have severe physical disabilities by pairing them with a dedicated member of our staff.
