40th Anniversary

23 Nov - Give Back this #GivingTuesday!

Did you know that New Hope receives the majority of our funding through Medicaid reimbursement? This means that many of the services we provide to our clients are paid for by the government. However, this funding often leaves a gap between what is paid for by Medicaid and the quality of care that we are committed to providing to our clients. For example, New Hope offers art therapy which is led by a trained, masters-level art therapist in which clients are able to express themselves through many different art mediums like painting, sculpting, tile mosaic and more. Because Medicaid does...

23 Nov - Thankful for 40 Years of Hope

Over the last four decades, New Hope of Indiana has been honored to serve thousands of people throughout Indianapolis and surrounding communities. What began as the dream of a group of mothers to find a safe and nurturing place for their children with cerebral palsy to live and thrive has now grown into a multifaceted organization serving people of all kinds. We are proud to maintain the level of care that those parents went searching for all those years ago across all of our programs and services, and if this year of celebration has made anything clear, it's that this...

15 Oct - Celebrating Our Culture Associate Pitch-In

It has been several years since New Hope has had an event for associates and their families, so this special year seemed like a great time to celebrate with a 40th anniversary pitch-in!  Associates were encouraged to bring a side dish to share and wear clothing which reflected their heritage.  There was a wonderful variety of food from around the world.  Many of the children who came with their parents were also dressed up and they enjoyed working on crafts and playing  games with each other.  Two volunteers from the Zionsville High School Key Club helped with the kids, but shared...

29 Aug - A New Hope Tradition

We have had such a great time celebrating our 40th Anniversary this year, and we have especially enjoyed exploring our past. In 1988 in celebration of our 10th anniversary, the staff, clients and families of New Hope got together and completed a series of paintings which still hang in our administrative offices today. We loved this idea of a community art project that might bring our New Hope family together and leave us with a long-lasting gift to add to our proud legacy. After doing a little research, we found out that the company which facilitated those original paintings as...

We all enjoy capturing those special moments, events and people in our lives. I believe that pictures tell our story and for many years have felt that is truly the case at New Hope.
