Since 1987, Housing Hope has provided affordable housing and social services to individuals and families experiencing homelessness and poverty. Tomorrow’s Hope opened in 1992 to provide parents access to affordable childcare and child development services.
In 2016, Tomorrow’s Hope was awarded an increased rating from the State Department of Early Learning’s Early Achievers voluntary Quality Rating and Improvement System. This program serves as a model for helping children to achieve on-target development and enter kindergarten academically and socially ready.
In 2020, Tomorrow’s Hope earned a behavioral health license from the State of Washington. This is one step toward Tomorrow’s Hope’s transformation into a therapeutic center, which would give us the ability to diagnose a child, define a treatment, and build therapeutic-type interactions into the classroom. We are one of three programs in Washington State to have earned the license and the only program in Snohomish County.
In 2021, Housing Hope’s affiliate, HopeWorks Social Enterprises, transferred ownership and began overseeing operations of Tomorrow’s Hope. As part of this, Tomorrow’s Hope enrolled in HopeWorks’ mission – to create pathways that provide hope, empowerment, education, and job training – and began a job training program to train new child educators. The first group of trainees graduated in 2022.
Tomorrow’s Hope is licensed to serve 135 children from four weeks old to 12 years of age, so that children of different ages can receive quality services at one location. What makes us unique compared to daycare centers?
