Community Hope was founded under the name Project Hope by mental health professionals and family members in response to the lack of therapeutic community settings for young adults recovering from serious mental illness. Today, our private nonprofit is among one of New Jersey’s largest providers of transitional and supportive housing for individuals in recovery from mental illness and substance abuse. With our 95-bed Hope for Veterans Transitional Housing Program, we are making the single largest impact in helping veterans in New Jersey break the cycle of homelessness.
Our Mission: Creating a brighter future for individuals recovering from mental illness and substance abuse by providing housing and services in a dignified, respectful, and person-centered way.
Community Hope’s residential programs enable individuals to readapt to daily life in society after months, even years, of psychiatric hospitalization or homelessness. Each participant is encouraged to assume greater challenges and become as self-sufficient as possible.
