HopeSpoke plays an invaluable role in providing children and families with the skills to feel empowered and be successful; helping them heal, be courageous and find strength to live well.

With a long history and positive presence, HopeSpoke continues to reach out with expert care to make our community a better place—full of happy, hopeful, healthy families.

Allen’s Story

“Allen” became a sixth-grade student entering into a new environment at the beginning for the 2019/20 school year and quickly found some difficulty with peers and curriculum.  These difficulties escalated into more defiant behaviors including suspensions and the necessity for greater intervention.  In addition to the school concerns Allen was facing, his family also had become involved with the Department of Health and Human Services for concerns about neglect taking place.
