Established in 1977 from the dreams and hopes of caring families and interested citizens throughout Carroll County, New Hope brings the comfort and contentment of home to many persons with disabilities. These caring individuals wanted people with disabilities to have more opportunities to enjoy their own homes, their own jobs, and the satisfaction of taking part in a community.

Dignity and self-fulfillment provided by caring staff members are the hallmark of the quality services available at New Hope. Here, individuals are treated with respect, given the chance to hope and fulfill their dreams and to find new skills and joys in an atmosphere of caring support.

Persons served include men and women ages 18 and over, whose independent living, employment, personal, social or functional development is challenged by intellectual disability, developmental disabilities and/or brain injury.

The programs at New Hope enable clients to live with purpose and dignity, and to acquire and maintain the skills necessary for personal growth. Each person has an individualized program based on his/her individual needs.

With major efforts in sharing the vision by attracting enthusiastic interest and help, and in conducting outstanding fund-raising efforts, the dreams of the founders were fulfilled beyond their fondest hopes.
