Who We Are & What We Do

Hope for Tomorrow, Inc. is a 501(c)3 not-for-profit social services agency that operates four (4) highly-structured, clinically-guided, substance-free homes, in Kane County, Illinois, for thirty-seven (37) adults suffering from the disease of mental health (post-traumatic stress disorder, anxiety disorders, and major depressive disorders) and/or chronic substance use disorders (alcohol, opiates, cocaine, prescription pain medications…).

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.

Hope for Tomorrow is the only agency of its kind in the City of Aurora, as well as Kane, Kendall, DeKalb, DuPage, Will, Grundy, Lake, McHenry, and Winnebago Counties to offer uniquely licensed Recovery Home services to the intensifying epidemic of substance abuse and mental health disorders.

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”®.

Our goals are to holistically address the following community needs, all of which are identified as “top ranking priorities” in the City of Aurora, Fox Valley United Way, & Kane County’s 2010-2014 Consolidated Plans:
