23 Mar - St. Vincent Gives Back to New Hope Once Again

As New Hope of Indiana reaches our 40th anniversary, we are so proud of the many relationships that have allowed us to have a significant impact in the lives of those with disabilities and families in need. In our history, there have been no more influential entities than St. Vincent Health and the Daughters of Charity.

22 Mar - Dedicating the Louise Group Home

In November, 2017, the individuals in the Louise group home moved to a wonderful new home, still in Atlanta, Indiana. The original Louise group home was an historic, two-story Victorian with very steep, dark stairs to the second floor. The new Louise home, not far from the other home, is one story and has been beautifully renovated to meet the needs of its residents. It was truly a team effort by all to make this move happen. To celebrate the new Louise home, a dedication occurred on March 15, 2018. We were honored to have current board...

22 Nov - Join New Hope on #GivingTuesday!

by Sarah Stone, Executive Assistant As a senior studying at IU, I first heard about Giving Tuesday after a professor encouraged me to do some research on charitable giving. I was in the middle of a semester studying and working in Washington D.C. where I felt like everyone I met had been made jaded by the city’s politics and crime. Away from the inclusive, small town community of Bloomington, I wasn’t completely convinced that my nonprofit management major would ever really pay off. But in early November a mentor of mine sent me a link to a short article titled “5...

24 Mar - March is Disability Awareness Month!

by Kathy Ballard PhD, Director of Community Outreach March is Disabilities Awareness Month. The intention being to make all of us, supposedly without disabilities, more aware of people who do have labels of disabilities. Once again, while well-intentioned it is a mechanism for separating people. Our oldest son, Bryan, lives downtown on Mass Ave., a very hip part of Indianapolis. He doesn’t own a car, so like many of the downtown crowd, he uses his bike and the public bus. He has his favorite coffee shop, favorite bike routes, favorite neighbors and favorite things to do. He volunteers with his church, he...
