Greetings, friends! Thanksgiving is just around the corner and it is my favorite holiday. Not just because I might get a bite of turkey, but because it gives me pause to count my blessings. So here is my top ten blessings list. 1. I work at New Hope, which is an awesome place! 2. I am surrounded by people who love me. 3. I have about 1,000 friends (some are people; some are dogs). 4. I have my own couch at the office. 5. I see a LOT of smiles! 6. Occasionally I get a Milk Bone. 7. In February people sing "Happy Birthday" to me. 8. Some of my friends play fetch with me in the...

Greetings Friends, It is National Disability Employment Awareness (NDEAM) Month and we are celebrating the many gifts people with disabilities bring to employers. There are so many benefits to hiring people with disabilities. Not the least of which is high quality work and dedication. Besides getting the job done, hiring people with disabilities changes the culture of a workplace for the better. It broadens the understanding of people without disabilities. Instead of assuming someone cannot do the job if they have a disability, they are able to see in action that indeed they can! And just like all the rest of us,...

Greetings friends, At my job here at New Hope of Indiana, I get to meet a whole lot of really special people. Not just the individuals that we serve, but my coworkers, too. There are a lot of important jobs to fill at New Hope, but one of the most important jobs is that of a DSP. DSP stands for Direct Support Professional, but I think it should stand for Delightfully Super Professionals! Because that is what our DSPs are. They provide exceptional care for those we serve. Our DSPs take their jobs seriously, while still having fun doing it. They...

Greetings friends, I arrived at New Hope on February 14, 2011! I turned 2 on February 17, 2011. I am now 10.5 years old. I remember what a fun first week it was. I came from Canine Companions for Independence, a wonderful national organization that places service dogs like me at no cost. On Saturday 8/24/19, New Hope hosted a puppy raiser workshop and a day of re-certifications for current working dogs for Canine Companions for Independence. I felt like I was watching my life all over again. From the littlest puppies to dogs in service to humans for years, they were all...

Greeting friends! I am thrilled to say that the Cheese and Thank You food truck is finally open! Cheese and Thank You not only means my favorite food, CHEESE, but a new program that’s a part of New Hope’s transitional services for young adults. Team members will have the opportunity to make and serve delicious mac-n-cheese to people around the Indy area. I was able to meet the Food Truck Specialist, Tim Dunkel, and the whole Cheese and Thank You team: Michelle, Elijah, and Richie. They’ve been getting excited for the grand opening of the food truck as they’ve been practicing their...

Greetings Friends, I do believe Spring is here, despite some chilly days. The flowers are blooming, and almost overnight, plants have shot up out of the dirt in our bird garden. It is amazing how things change. By the way, if you are looking for a change, we have some great job opportunities here at New Hope of Indiana. The Vocational Services program is looking for an Supported Employment Consultant who assist people in finding and maintaining employment. We are also hiring a Food Truck Specialist who will be responsible for all aspects of the food truck and its...

Happy Spring, Everyone! Isn’t it fun to see the crocuses and daffodils pushing through the ground? Oh, it is such a great time to play outside. One of my favorite things to do is to roll in the grass on my back. Try it, you’ll like it. I'd have to say my favorite things to do in the spring are rolling in the grass, smelling the ground where all the underground critters have made their homes, chasing a stick and then shaking my head back and forth when I catch it, laying in the sun, digging in the dirt and did I...

Hi Friends, Even though February is often cold and dreary, it is one of my most favorite months! It is my service anniversary and my birthday!

I still love coming to work every day and getting lots of head pats and tummy rubs! I also love seeing the great things that are going on here at New Hope of Indiana and in our community. AIM (Achieving Inclusion and Meaning) groups are out and about. This...
