Our vision is that one day, all people living with mental illness will be respected, valued, and connected to their community.

Gathering Hope House (GHH) is a member-run non-profit organization dedicated to empowering Lorain County adults who manage mental illnesses. We know individuals can recover from the effects of mental illness, and our enriched adult day and evening programs support person-led rehabilitation. We believe people managing mental illnesses deserve to lead rich, meaningful lives and feel that they are valued members of society.

We offer employment and volunteer opportunities, education, social activities, wellness programming, and more for individuals 18 years or older who manage a mental illness.

Located on the border of Lorain and Sheffield in Lorain County, Gathering Hope House is inspired by the International Clubhouse model, where everyone who either attends or works here is referred to as a member, promoting a sense of belonging, because after all, you belong here!

Gathering Hope House is a non-profit 501c3 organization, all donations are tax-deductible and directly benefit our members.

LCCC Police Acedemy Cadets give donation of hopeLCCC Police Acedemy Cadets give donation of hope
We are beyond grateful to the Lorain County Community College Police Academy cadets for thinking of us during their yearly fundraiser and inviting us to receive a large donation from their class!

This year members were invited to speak to the cadets and reduce the stigma of managing mental illness by sharing their personal experiences with law enforcement. We are proud of our members for their impactful sharing, and so thankful to the Police Academy Cadets for welcoming our members and supporting Gathering Hope Houses' mission to encourage communities to become more accepting of ALL the residents!

(From the LCCC Facebook Page):
LCCC Police Academy cadets recently presented a donation to Gathering Hope House.
To raise funds, the cadets created and sold unique challenge coins, as well as pastries at the Lorain County Deputies Association BBQ Bash.
LCCC Police Academy Commander Richard Thomas challenges each class to participate in charitable fundraising and community service. The Gathering Hope House is a Lorain County non-profit that encourages people with mental health illnesses to come together and focus on their goals.
