A Note from Allison

25 Jan - A Note from Allison: Use Your Voter Voice

Happy New Year! I hope 2019 is off to a great start! Things are off to a good start at New Hope! One of my main focuses this time of year is around the Indiana General Assembly. As some of you may know, I spent many years of my career at the Statehouse lobbying on a variety of healthcare-related issues. During my time there, I realized how much can really be done through grassroots efforts. It is no different for the disability community. We have a very important legislative agenda to get passed this year, and we will not be able to do it without support from...

27 Nov - A Note from Allison: Grateful for Those We Serve

We who work at New Hope of Indiana are very lucky! "Why?" you may ask. We have many things for which to be grateful. First, we are so very grateful for the people that we serve. We are grateful for their love, joy and presence. Serving them and being part of their lives is an honor we do not take for granted. We are grateful for their families and loved ones as well. Without their trust and support we would not be able to be of service. We are also grateful for the people that give...

30 Oct - A Note from Allison: Be Kind

It is with a heavy heart that this letter is sent to you. We are all saddened by the past week’s events in Pittsburgh. I was happy to be greeted by a new sign outside our New Hope doors. New Hope is a kind and loving place for the people we serve and the associates who work here. If you want to come visit a place that is hate-free and happy, come see us! I can’t believe October is nearly over. It has been a very busy month - probably the busiest of all months. ...

25 Sep - A Note from Allison: Thank You from New Hope!

Happy First Week of Fall! September has been an awesome month at New Hope of Indiana! September 9th-15th was Direct Support Professional (DSP) Appreciation Week! New Hope has over 330 DSPs that do amazing things every week providing love and support to all the individuals they serve each day. We really cannot thank them enough for all that they do, so it is great to have one week dedicated to DSPs. Did you know that 25% of New Hope DSPs have been with us 10 years or more? DSPs live New Hope’s Core Values every day. Their Dedication,...

Happy hot summer! I hope you are all surviving this August heat! New Hope continues to thrive, even with the thermometer at 90 degrees! We are thrilled to announce our new program, AIM (Achieving Inclusion and Meaning), started this month. This program serves young adults who are leaving high school. Our first group started a couple of weeks ago and they are already volunteering and exploring our community! Thanks to Pearson Ford and to many of you who met their match at our Silver Cup Celebration, we have a new gently used Ford Flex in which they will experience Indy! We are also...

31 Jul - A Note from Allison: Passionate about New Hope

Passion! Passion is one of the words I think of when I think about New Hope of Indiana. Our associates, board members, volunteers and donors are all passionate about our mission, the people we serve and/or their fellow New Hope associates. It is very easy to be the CEO of such a passionate organization because I see it and the joy it brings every day. New Hope people never cease to amaze me! They show their passion in both big and little ways. To everyone in the New Hope family, I say thank you for making our little corner of...

26 Jun - A Note from Allison: Sharing Our Gifts

Happy June! Lately, I have been thinking about gifts, especially the gifts of the wonderful people surrounding New Hope. Some gifts are obvious like Lynn Feldman’s artistic and quilting ability that is demonstrated by the beautiful quilt she recently made. Some of them not so obvious like the gift of an individual we serve to make us smile; the gift of presence from one staff member to another; the gift that our maintenance people give the individuals we serve by letting them help and feel like “one of the guys”. The gift of love, care and devotion that...
