Hope Network Developmental and Community Services operates a number of specialized residential-based services programs in West Michigan.
All of our programs are staffed with direct support professionals who provide personal care and community living supports in accordance with an individual’s plan of service.
In many cases, residents receive assistance in varying degrees with the following activities:
- Meal preparation
- Household care
- Activities of daily living
- Money management
- Socialization and relationship building
- Recreational opportunities
- Non-medical care
Each house is staffed with direct support professionals who use the Mandt System to engage with residents one-on-one. A DHHS-approved curriculum is used to assist residents with:
- personal care services
- community living support
- medication administration
- medical training and support
Interpretation services are provided by certified personnel on a contract basis.
Consistent with the culture of gentleness and person-centered planning principles, we believe that everyone deserves to feel valued and to pursue their dreams. To that end, our interventions are informed by individual resident preferences and interests.
We promote self-sufficiency and community inclusion through a number of practices, including posted events calendars with identified staffing supports, individual schedules, and inclusive meetings (with residents). These structures promote predictability, planning, and participation. Many of the individuals living in this home are active in the larger community (within local faith communities, with friendships outside of the home, as active volunteers, and team members).
Enhanced services are available through Hope Network Development and Community Services. The home works with a team of outpatient providers to coordinate care based on individual treatment needs identified in the person-centered planning process. These include:
