Our mission is “to teach individuals with
homelessness, mental health disorders and
chronic substance abuse issues how to
successfully and permanently reintegrate
into society”. We are committed to the
belief that incorporating a comprehensive,
recovery home approach to the treatment of
homelessness and addictive disorders
produces an accountable, responsible,
productive, and self-sufficient lifestyle
that benefits not only the individual, but
all of society.
Hope for Tomorrow does not discriminate and
provides services to all persons regardless
of race, ethnicity, creed, sex, sexual
orientation, HIV/AIDS status, or financial
ability to pay. We offer a tangible,
replicable, and solution-focused approach to
an intensifying psychosocial problem.

kind in the City of Aurora, as well as
Kendall, DeKalb, DuPage, Will, Grundy, Lake,
McHenry, and Winnebago Counties to

services to the intensifying epidemic of

Hope for Tomorrow's
program goals are to reduce homelessness and
substance abuse, prevent relapse, identify
and treat mental illness, and aid
reintegration into society. Our
treatment approach encompasses not only the
symptoms of the disease (active addiction)
but, more importantly, it addresses root
causes such as trauma, shame, abandonment,
loneliness, emptiness and sexual abuse. Hope
for Tomorrow’s belief is that in order to
fully recover from a hopeless state of mind
and soul individuals must “Build their lives
around recovery instead of building recovery
around their lives”®.

military personnel are relentless in their
sacrifices to our nation. In return, we, as
a nation, are indebted to the well-being of
all veterans. America needs to band together
to ensure that we meet the needs of every
veteran as they return “home” from war.
