Our programs help youth develop social skills, build trust and form relationships, with the ultimate goal being for youth to return to a family setting, or to prepare them for adulthood by helping them achieve self-sufficiency, educational goals, and financial stability. One Hope United has residential facilities in northern and central Illinois.
