Project Hope Foundation
Hope Link is a program of HOPE Foundation designed to help families deal with the challenges of autism by providing information about autism spectrum disorders, including symptoms, therapies, interventions, services, funding options, and coping skills. Since 1997, Project HOPE Foundation has assisted over 1,000 families by providing them with hands-on attention. In 2009, we released a DVD, Understanding Autism: A Resource for Families, Pediatricians, and Caregivers, to broaden the scope of these services. View the trailer for this DVD.
In our Hope Reach program, we open minds by providing 25-40 hours per week per child of intense Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) therapy focusing on language, behavioral, social, and cognitive skills. We currently average over 1,500 hours of therapy each week. Hope Reach provides both home-based and clinic-based services. It is the only nonprofit provider of this therapy in Upstate South Carolina.
We promote inclusion through Hope Academy, a school specifically designed to provide children with autism the opportunity to learn in classrooms with typical peers and a typical curriculum. Since its inception in 1997, this unique school has served over 1,000 children, building relationships that have changed lives.
Our newest endeavor, Hope Alive, is an innovative approach to expand potential of youth and young adults with autism who need continued, creative support in the areas of academics, life-skills, interests, vocational opportunities and experiences.
