At Hope Haven we understand that your child’s needs for high-quality, supportive learning and enriching experiences continue after the school day ends. Our Hope After School program provides a safe, structured after-school setting for youth aged 3 to 22 with physical and/or developmental disabilities where they can learn, grow and have fun.

Weekly activities enjoyed by students in our Hope After School program include, but are not limited to, the following:
Sports and Games
Music and Movement
Independent Living Skills
Our one-to-five staff to client ratio will give your family peace of mind of knowing that your precious family members have our full attention and focus as they enhance their social skills, develop independent living skills and improve academically within our after school program. To ensure a safe, stable environment, we do ask that all our students are able to participate in a group setting. If your child requires one-on-one assistance we will happily provide you with guidance and advice on possible options. Sometimes students are able to participate in a group setting with the support of an ABA, and we can help you explore this further.
Hope After School takes the guesswork out of scheduling by following the Duval County Public Schools calendar. We are open on school days Monday through Friday from 2:30 p.m. – 6:00 p.m. On early release days, Hope After School conveniently opens at 1:00 p.m. Hope After School is billed at a monthly rate and is $459 per month (financial assistance is available). Because we understand how difficult it can be to arrange alternative care or take off from work when schools close, we offer Days of Hope on some school holidays (an additional fee applies). We announce dates and details well in advance to assist with planning.
Transportation to Hope Haven may be provided for children and young adults attending private schools. Students who attend a Duval County Public School can ride the school bus to Hope Haven. Please contact us with specific questions about transportation arrangements for your student.
