Supporting individuals with intellectual disabilities, brain injuries and neurological impairments in achieving their dreams and personal goals with dignity, compassion and distinction.
Founded in 2006
Point of Hope was founded in 2006 by the Robinson family. It is a place that demonstrates an authentic passion throughout the day with regards to the well being of our program family, many who have histories of being mistreated, disrespected, and neglected. After investigating allegations of abuse and mistreatment and working in a state facility for adults and children with developmental, intellectual disabilities and other mental health challenges, Mrs. Robinson had a calling. She felt an overwhelming need to create an organization that was dedicated and committed to providing the highest quality of care to adults with developmental and intellectual disabilities. For years she dreamed of Point of Hope.
Despite the challenging environment of the state facility, Mrs. Robinson enjoyed her career as a Special Ed Educator. After 30 years of teaching, Mrs. Robinson left the classroom and transferred to the state investigatory department. In her new role, she was responsible for investigating allegations of abuse and neglect in addition to performing quality inspections of residential homes and day programs. Mrs. Robinson worked in the field for over 40 years. When Mrs. Robinson decided to retire, she, her husband, a retired CPA with the Federal Government, and one of her sons, who left corporate America were bound and determined to do their part to change the way these beautiful people are treated.
To date, Point of Hope continues to be owned and operated by the Robinson family adding their remaining 2 children. Their daughter also an educator and Certified Brain Injury Specialist, joined the agency in 2008 and their other son from corporate America, joined in 2016.
We are all committed to the belief that everyone we support has a right to enjoy all the wonderful experiences life has to offer and to be able to live their best lives. While in our care, our program participants are treated like family and our ultimate goal, every single day, is to assist all of our program participants in living their best lives in a safe and loving environment.
