Just Training But a Lifetime of Self-Worth
HOPE Center Vocational Programs provide supervision,employment,
assessment,community activities, training and placement to adults
from the age of 16 who have been diagnosed as developmentally disabled.
Unlike some other programs, the Vocational Programs do not strive
for the end goal of simply finding low-wage jobs or time filling
activities for developmentally disabled adults. Rather, our professional
and personal commitment is to the development of the whole individual
for a greater and longer-term return.
It is for this
reason that the vocational facility is located in the heart
of a diverse and active community. Our belief is that too often,
adults are segregated, divided from mainstream society and isolated
they can supposedly be more easily managed. This can be perhaps
injurious treatment of human beings.
it is our conviction that those with developmental
disabilities benefit society and themselves far more by being fully
connected to the world at large. That is why you'll find our facility
the core of the community, near a major branch of the Denver library,
post office, a community center, a developing shopping center, and
As part of our
community support, the staffs of nearby facilities
collaborate with HOPE Center's adult clients on a routine basis.
clients go to the Pauline Robinson Library every week to sort books,
often at the post office across the street on grounds maintenance,
volunteer for entertainment functions and lunch preparation and
duties at the Stovall Care Center for senior citizens a few blocks
do all this and more as part of our dedication to the principle
that every human being is capable of serving the community and,
in return, developing as a fulfilled, caring and motivated individual.
