Hope for Disabilities

Fulfilling unmet needs in the disability community

Who We Are
Hope Community Resources (Hope) is a non-profit organization that provides community supports throughout the State of Alaska to over 1,400 families and individuals who experience disabilities. Currently, Hope is the only agency to provide services on a state-wide basis through regional offices that are located in Anchorage, the Mat-Su Valley, Dillingham, Kodiak, Juneau, Ketchikan, Seward, Barrow and the Kenai Peninsula. Based in these communities, Hope also serves the outlying areas and numerous villages surrounding each region.      

Who We Serve
The people who choose Hope supports range in age from infancy to the elderly; are of varied and diverse ethnic background; and experience mild to severe disabilities.  Each person is individual and unique in the supports they need and request.  Because of this, Hope focuses service planning on the individual and not on a standard "menu" of supports.  Each person's plan is customized to meet their specific needs and dreams. 

Approximately 28% of Hope's support recipients are Alaskan Native.  This proves to be challenging with the language barriers and the vastness of the state; however, Hope has accepted this challenge through its expansion of regional offices, subsistence supports and cultural awareness.

Keeping families together in the community of their choice is a major component of Hope's mission.
