Who We Are

Mission Statement

To promote inclusion, provide innovative opportunities, and empower individuals with disabilities

Vision Statement

Individuals with disabilities shall have equal opportunities to fully participate in their community comprehensively and safely as valued, healthy members.

C-HOPE was founded by parents of children with disabilities who were looking for more and diverse opportunities for their children and their children’s peers as they transitioned from high school. Through the grace of countless individuals who volunteered their time and talent, C-HOPE was incorporated in 2015. Today, C-HOPE is thriving, thanks to the efforts of stakeholder groups working collaboratively and striving for social inclusion.
