About the Agency:
NU-HOPE Elder Care Services, Inc. (NU-HOPE) is a private 501 (c)(3) not-for-profit organization dedicated to enhancing the lives of seniors and preventing unnecessary institutional placements of the elderly and disabled.
NU-HOPE coordinates and provides services (subsidized and private pay) to residents ages 60 years or older who reside in Highlands and Hardee County, Florida. Additionally, we advocate for seniors rights and services and provide leadership, expertise and guidance to organizations throughout our community.
NU-HOPE is recognized by the Florida Department of Elder Affairs as the Lead Agency for the provision of home and community based services in Highlands and Hardee County. NU-HOPE is also the primary provider of Older Americans Act funded services and coordinates a variety of other community supported and private-pay programs.
Funding for our subsidized services is primarily obtained through Federal, State and local government and community grants; community donations; fundraising events and net proceeds from sales at our thrift stores. As a result, clients enrolled in these programs are able to receive services at no cost or for a low, sliding scale fee.
NU-HOPE also offers many services through our private-pay-program. This program assists those who are unable to receive subsidized services due to waiting lists or eligibility requirements, as well as those who are simply seeking to hire assistance from an experienced and reliable organization.
