The Hope Center of Hendersonville

A Brief History



After seeing a need in our community, Hope Academy was founded to provide opportunities for adults with disabilities who have ages out of school.

Hope Academy began as a donation funded ministry of a local church in Hendersonville, North Carolina. 



As the program continued to grow, we began to take the necessary steps to become an independent program including becoming a 501(c)(3) nonprofit.


We also became licensed through the North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services, accredited through CARF International, and received our credentialing through Vaya Health. 

These things enabled us to be able to accept Medicaid funding. 



Hope Academy re-branded as The Hope Center to better represent our program.


We also purchased our own campus to better accommodate our growing program.

The Hope Center also added additional home and community services to better serve our members and their families.
