More than 400 businesses and organizations belong to the Chamber to receive benefits and support efforts to strengthen their businesses and our region. Increased membership allows us to offer additional programs and benefits, have a stronger voice in advocacy and be involved in more activities and initiatives in our communities. The Chamber welcomes its newest member, Hope Enterprises, Inc., to help us fulfill our mission.
Hope Enterprises’ mission is to enhance the lives of people with developmental disABILITIES by providing them with caring supports and responsive programs and services. Founded in 1952 in Williamsport, where its headquarters remain, Hope is a leading organization in Pennsylvania in providing community services to people with development disABILITIES. Its services are focused in four main areas:
– Children – providing early intervention and therapies for young children that have been identified as having a developmental disABILITY
– Residential – providing an array of programs that allow adults with developmental disABILITIES to live on their own
– Employment – putting adults with developmental disABILITIES in ideal places to work based on their strengths and interests
– Home and Community Support – this includes companion services, home support, building life and work skills, and engaging adults in community participation
For over 10 years now, since 2007, Hope has had a presence in Columbia and Montour counties ever since it merged with the former CMSU Service System. It has an office in Danville located at 351 Church St., and also provides several residential homes for adults that it serves in this two-county area. Its Danville office can be reached at 570-275-8691, or visit its website or Facebook page.
