Chartered in 1890, HopeTree offers quality care to children and youth throughout Virginia. As a private, nonprofit agency, our mission is to provide care for dependents needing placement services, and provide supportive services to families in need. Our purpose is to reconcile and strengthen the family when possible, or when appropriate, to help arrange suitable alternative care.
HopeTree’s Residential Care program provides an environment which enhances the emotional, educational, physical, social, and spiritual development of each child. The program is offered in two locations – Salem Campus and the HopeTree Wilderness Outdoor Opportunity Discovery School (WOODS) in Craig County.
HopeTree Academy is a fully licensed secondary school located on our Salem campus. HopeTree Academy provides transitional educational services for students from surrounding jurisdictions, as well as for residents on our campus.
HopeTree Clinical Services provides individual, group, and family counseling services for clients of our residential programs. Services are also offered to the community on an out-patient basis.
HopeTree provides placement and support services through HopeTree Foster Care. HopeTree places children in approved foster homes and provides training, case management, support groups, respite, and financial reimbursement to foster families as well as support services for the birth families of children in foster care when the goal is reunification.
