Hope Network currently serves over 20,000 citizens statewide. It is estimated that 10-15% of those served self-identify as a Veteran.
We work very closely with the Veterans’ Administration Non Institutional Care Coordinator to coordinate services for each veteran. Currently, at Side by Side Adult Day Services we serve 12 veterans who reside in the community and attend our program at least 3 days a week. We provide daytime activity programming for meaningful socialization and stimulation that affects their body, mind and spirit, as well as monitoring of the veterans’ health and well-being. We also provide for daytime respite, support and education for their caregiver. Transportation is available to and from the program. The veteran may have a co-pay, dependent upon their income, for their services at the adult day program and transportation
Hope Network Neuro Rehabilitation was proud to be one of the few community-based brain injury programs selected nationwide to contract with the Department of Veterans Affairs to provide Assisted Living Services for Veterans with brain injuries. The program was ended by the VA, but while it in operation, we had a contract, less than 20 other providers did nationwide.
Less than 5% of our tenant population are self-identified veterans, however we are attempting to increase this by providing a veteran preference across our entire portfolio.
We serve approximately 40 veterans on a regular basis.
