Mt. Hope Family Center
In 1979, Mt. Hope Family Center began as a therapeutic preschool program for children affected by violence in their home or community. They have grown into an award-winning, nationally and internationally respected center that combines scientific research, clinical services and hands-on mentoring and training in one facility. Today, they provide evidence-based intervention and prevention services to over 900 at-risk children and families annually in our community.
At Mt. Hope Family Center, they focus on treating children and helping parents develop the skills they need to understand child development, communicate more effectively, and resolve conflict in non-violent ways. They help to break the cycle of maltreatment while working with children and their families to strengthen the family relationship.
The Kickball League of Rochester players have helped raise over $2,000 so far for Mt Hope Family Center for the Fall 2018 season.
