In 1975, 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.
