What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

HopeWell’s objective is to help close the opportunity gaps and eliminate the inequitable barriers that exist for individuals who have historically been left behind, especially children and youth experiencing foster care.

What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Comprehensive Foster Care Program

HopeWell is the largest nonprofit provider of Comprehensive Foster Care in Massachusetts. We recruit, license and train foster parents to provide the best quality of care to children who have been removed from their family of origin due to substantiated cases of abuse or neglect. Foster parents are part of a team designed to help children and families meet their goals.
 
The program serves approximately 500 children and adolescents annually through our six regional offices located across Massachusetts.

Population(s) Served
Children and youth

HopeWell supports adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities in two main ways. We partner with adults who live on their own to support their independence and capacity to provide loving care to their children, if they are parenting, and our Shared Living program matches each individual with a local host family who provides consistent learning opportunities in a safe, caring environment.

Population(s) Served
Adults

HopeWell’s FSS program provides in-home support and stabilization services to approximately 450 families annually who are involved with DCF. DCF refers families to us who are at risk of having their child(ren) removed from the home, as well as families who already have lost custody of their children and need support to work towards reunification. The vast majority of these families are experiencing poverty and multiple other stressors compounded by the pandemic.

Population(s) Served
Families

With 50+ years of experience working with youth in foster care, HopeWell learned the impact that the lack of housing has on the lives of youth who “age out” of the foster care system. In 2018, HopeWell launched My First Place, a "housing first" program that provides safe, stable housing combined with intensive educational, employment, and case management support so young adults can develop the skills they need to successfully transition to self-sufficiency. We support approximately 40 young adults each year.

Population(s) Served
Adults
Adolescents

RISE is HopeWell’s innovative solution to advance equity in education and improve educational opportunities for children experiencing foster care. RISE provides home-based services for children and caregivers through consistent, high-impact tutoring and other educational supports with well-trained tutors that are paid a fair wage. The program aims to build students’ early literacy skills through a culturally responsive, evidence-informed curriculum designed to meet the unique needs of children in foster care by integrating literacy learning, social and emotional skill development, and a trauma-informed approach.
