Mission

Founded in 1957, Hope is an educational innovator for individuals with disabilities which grew from a residential campus in Springfield and has since expanded to become so much more. We now impact thousands of children who represent a broad spectrum of learning styles and abilities. Through our multi-state outpatient Autism Clinics providing ABA therapy and diagnostics, our academies in Chicago and Springfield, our residential program, and our clinical expertise provided through the Illinois Crisis Prevention Network, Hope has been able to pioneer cutting edge interventions that support individuals to achieve optimally, regardless of socioeconomic background, learning style, or disability. The individuals we serve enjoy improved learning outcomes, increased confidence, and independence.

The Hope School Learning Center

Dedicated in 2003, The Hope School Learning Center is a 40,000 square foot state-of-the-art facility offering day and residential students the best possible environment for learning, so that each student may obtain the maximum benefit.

Population(s) Served

The Hope Center for Residential Services provides the very best round-the-clock care and specialized assistance for children with developmental disabilities.  Children reside either on Hope’s beautiful 25 acre wooded campus on the shore of Lake Springfield, or in one of 10 group homes in the Springfield area.  A variety of residential programs allow Hope to match each youth’s unique needs with the proper level of support.

Population(s) Served

Providing the best health care for the Children of Hope is a top priority.   The staff of The Hope Institute Health and Wellness Center work tirelessly to meet all the health care needs of the children served by The Hope Institute.  Because of the medically fragile nature of some of the children, expertise and attention to detail are vital.  An experienced staff and partnerships with top health care providers in the region, assure that the Children of Hope receive outstanding care!

Population(s) Served

TAP is the largest statewide autism services network in the nation.  With more than 30 partners, and 13 locations across the state, no family is very far from the TAP Service Network.  Since its beginning in 2003, TAP’s focus has been on developing a comprehensive, evidence-based system of care for Illinois families.  To that end, TAP has trained thousands of parents, educators, health care professionals and first responders.  You can visit the TAP web site at www.theautismprogram.org(http://www.theautismprogram.org/) .

Population(s) Served

Noll Medical Pavilion represents a bold step to provide a new source of Hope to families in central and southern Illinois. Together with non-profit partners, The Hope Institute shares a common goal of serving families of children with developmental disabilities or mental illness. Noll Medical Pavilion is a unique and innovative endeavor to bring primary care and specialist providers together, under one roof, in a medical home. Often children with developmental disabilities and mental illness have difficulty gaining access to these essential services. Frequently, their families must travel considerable distances to obtain the care their children need. Noll Medical Pavilion will offer high quality, comprehensive care in one convenient, centralized location.
