27 Feb New Hope’s AIM Group is Expanding
New Hope of Indiana is excited to launch a third group in its AIM (Achieving Inclusion and Meaning) program. The program, which began in 2019, provides young adults with developmental disabilities who are exiting high school with the opportunity to be active and social in the community. AIM added a third group in 2020 just before the pandemic but had to pause that group after COVID-19 hit.
As COVID-19 restrictions have lessened and current AIM participants have been able to get back out into the community, there has been increased interest in the program. This has led to AIM once again adding a third group that will include participants who are currently involved in other New Hope programs as well as participants who are new to New Hope.
The third AIM group will be led by new Community Mentor, Susie DeLoach. Similar to AIM’s current programming, participants in the new group will go on community outings throughout Indianapolis such as taking educational classes, visiting museums and touring historical landmarks. Other activities for the program include volunteering for organizations such as Gleaners, Meals on Wheels and the Indianapolis Public Library.
We are delighted by this expansion of AIM and are eager to see what the future holds for the program and its participants. If you’d like to keep up with AIM’s adventures, follow AIM of New Hope of Indiana on Facebook.
