Participant Inquiry

Thank you for your interest in our programs. Our mission at High Hopes has always been to support the mind, body and spirit of as many individuals with disabilities and challenging life circumstances as possible while continuing to provide the highest level of quality in our programs and interaction with our participants. At this time, our current resource limitations are hindering our ability to accept additional applicants for our waitlist. To best serve those interested, you may simply submit your name and email below and we will notify you as soon as we have space available or when we re-open our waitlist. Visit the PATH International website for other programs and resources that might be of interest in Connecticut. Thank you for your understanding and we hope to serve you in the near future!
