Project HOPE leads the way in serving children with autism in South Carolina through four programs (Hope Link, Hope Reach, Hope Academy, Hope Alive) each focusing on a particular aspect of our mission to: Help families Open minds Promote inclusion Expand potential
Hope Link is a program of HOPE Foundation designed to help families deal with the challenges of autism by providing information about autism spectrum disorders, including symptoms, therapies, interventions, services, funding options,& coping skills. Since 1997, Project HOPE Foundation has assisted over 1,000 families by providing them with hands-on attention
In our Hope Reach program, we open minds by providing 25-40 hours per week per child of intense Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) therapy focusing on language, behavioral, social, & cognitive skills. Hope Reach provides home-based & clinic-based services. It's the only nonprofit provider of this therapy in Upstate South Carolina.
We promote inclusion through Hope Academy, a school specifically designed to provide children with autism the opportunity to learn in classrooms with typical peers and a typical curriculum.
Our newest endeavor, Hope Alive, is an innovative approach to expand potential of children, youth and young adults with autism who need continued, creative support in the areas of academics, life-skills, interests, vocational opportunities and experiences.
