Heart of Hope is surrounded by 23 acres of beautiful property.
Whether walking the grounds, playing basketball, shooting pool in
the gym or working out in the exercise room, you have a variety of
ways to stretch your legs and stay fit.
The Hope Chest is where you get to redeem your earned merits
that we call “bonus bucks”! How do you earn merits?
Well, during the day you are responsible for things like eating a
healthy breakfast, making your bed, going to school, doing your
homework, going to life skill classes, etc. Participating in the
schedule outlined for you earns you merits. Even when you show
restraint or say something kind you earn a merit. These merits are
redeemed in the Hope Chest where you will find baby items such as
diapers, baby wipes, baby clothes, blankets and even baby
furniture. The Hope Chest also has personal items for you such as
stationary, jewelry, special bath soap and lotions, and purses. You
can spend these “bucks” anyway you want. Being
responsible is a lot fun!
