The Hope Chest is where you get to redeem your earned merits that we call “Hope 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. 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 Gifts of Hope, another special boutique,
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!
