The foundation of our work helps to develop young children, challenge youth to reach their full potential and provides families with guidance. We endeavor towards an integrated approach where programs and services will work together to address the overall needs of families, children and youth to have a long lasting impact that will improve and enrich their lives.

John Hope Settlement House Child Care Services, the Family Renewal Center and the Youth, Adult and Family Wellness Center comprise the cornerstones of our work. Within each of these centers reside comprehensive services and strategies to address the needs of our children, youth and families while also working in coordination with each other to ensure a holistic approach.
