H.O.P.E. Counseling & Associates, LLC was founded in 2015 with the desire to help individuals, couples, and families bring about change through empowerment. The directors at H.O.P.E. Counseling & Associates, LLC have extensive experience working with families and individuals that have active cases with the Department of Child Services. The individuals and families, often times, struggle to identify and overcome the barriers that prevent them from successfully reuniting with their child(ren) or prevent their child(ren) being removed from their care. Our hope is to ensure that families remain intact or have the best possible outcome based on their situation or needs. With degrees in psychology, criminal justice, secondary education, and marriage and family therapy the owners created programs to treat clients from a wholistic point of view.
H.O.P.E. Counseling & Associates, LLC currently contracts with the Department of Child Services to provide Home Based Therapy, Home Based Casework, and Supervised Visitation Facilitation within Region 10 (Marion County) and Region 14 (Johnson, Shelby, Jennings, Jackson, and Bartholomew County). H.O.P.E. Counseling & Associates, LLC also works with clients that have active juvenile probation cases.

H.O.P.E. Counseling & Associates, LLC works with H.O.P.E.s Closet and Pantry, LLC to operate a community food pantry that supplies food, household, and hygiene items to individuals and families in the Indianapolis and surrounding communities. Our food pantry allows individuals/families the opportunity to “shop” and pick out the items that they need and will use. Each individual/family is given a food and household/hygiene item budget to use to go shopping in the food pantry. The budget is determined by household income and number of household members.
Our volunteers work with individuals/families to help them plan meals, supplement items they already have, and plan for special needs (dietary restrictions, etc.). H.O.P.E. relies on donations to keep the food pantry stocked and available to the community. The food pantry is open Monday through Friday from 10am to 3pm. Outside appointments or arrangements for donations can be made by contacting H.O.P.E. at firstname.lastname@example.org.
At H.O.P.E. Counseling & Associates, LLC all service lines engage in case consultations together. For example, home based therapists engage in case consultations with home based case workers and home based supervised visitation facilitators. This allows for the entire treatment team to be actively involved in that client's care and treatment process
