Hope Community Resources – Dillingham / Bristol Bay Region

The remoteness and culture of the Dillingham/Bristol Bay Region is what drives the services and supports offered in this region.  For Native Alaskans, being able to provide for yourself and others through subsistence activities is a way of life.  Hope believes this should be no different for people who experience disabilities.  To honor this philosophy, this region's services are developed around a subsistence lifestyle, designed to give individuals the greatest opportunity to become reacquainted or better acquainted with traditional cultural pursuits

Areas served:  Dillingham, Clarks Point, Aleknagik, New Stuyahok, Naknek, Chignik Lagoon, Ekwok, Perryville, Togiak
Hope believes families and individuals should have control over their lives.  By giving them choice in living environments, personalized supports, employment opportunities and other support options, they can exercise that control.  Hope promotes a concerted advocacy for the rights of people who experience a disability.

Services provided: Hope owns and operates one assisted living home for three men in Dillingham, while providing in-home supports to the remaining 24 people in its services.  This region has a very extensive subsistence program, which teaches hunting, fishing, trapping, wood splitting, gardening and much more to people choosing Hope’s supports.  In fact, the assisted living home has operated for many years on a completely subsistence lifestyle in terms of providing food for everyone living there.
