Hope & Thrive Academy

Holston Home for Children serves young adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities through a program called Hope & Thrive Academy (HTA).

In our program, we focus on all areas that promote growth: Academic, Physical, Social, Emotional, Vocational, and Spiritual.

Often, young adults who have graduated or aged out of high school drift into a life of isolation, loneliness, and inactivity. Seeing the need to fill a desperate void within our local community, we’ve created an innovative program that maximizes independence, social maturity, and spiritual growth for students with disabilities. Our program invites them back to a productive life of gainful employment, vibrant social engagement, and physical fitness. Hope & Thrive Academy opens new vistas for an underserved segment of our community!

Our driving force is a passionate desire to help those who cannot help themselves while raising the trajectory of their lives and empowering them and their families to lead more productive and fulfilling lives within our communities. We also have a desire to partner with our families in providing an answer to the question parents and caregivers often ask: “What happens to my child with disabilities if something happens to me?”

If Hope & Thrive Academy can meet a need for you or your loved one with disabilities, please contact us for more information.
