Hope Family Village
Co-founded by 7 caregiving families, Hope Family Village, a 501(c)3 nonprofit corporation, is a community-centric collaborative, offering acceptance, housing, and sustainable support for people with mental health conditions and their families. We are currently designing and developing an eco-friendly, pedestrian village for 25 families. A permanent solution. Our first project will be located between New Town and Eastern State. A couple of our themes: (1) Neighbors helping neighbors and (2) by taking care of the caregiver, we take care of the loved one. The village will be co-developed by the founding families and feature a community center, where meals can be shared. We will feature community gardens. There will be a least one Fairweather Lodge for 5 unrelated adults, living in recovery. We plan to attract a number of partners in our innovation in mental health care.
