For families struggling and in need we want tomorrow to be a better day.
In 2011, New Hope was founded as the only emergency housing solution in Monroe County that keeps families intact; meaning families with adults & children of all ages and any composition.
Quickly we realized that in order to allow parents to work and for the often traumatized children to catch up with other kids, we needed high quality early childhood development & daycare.
Dealing with the challenges of today requires problem-solvers who bring different perspectives and are willing to take risks. New Hope for Families emerged out of a pursuit to inspire and support the community, and a desire for actions to speak louder than words.
We’re an organization driven by progressive ideas, bold actions, and a strong foundation of support.
New Hope is formed.
Our first home opened for families with 3 units at 409 West 2nd St.
We added a second house at 301 West 2nd St. to serve 5 families.
We officially launched our first full-time summer program.
New Hope becomes a
United Way member agency.
We opened a third house at 303 W. 2nd St. for 4 families.
We opened The Nest Child Development Center at 311 West 2nd St.
The Nest expanded services from 10 to 16 children and moved to its present location.
The Nest achieves Level 4 accreditation by the National Association for Family and Child Care.
