Connie Kurtz, our new Executive Director is not new to Hopewell Center!
Connie Kurtz has been with Hopewell Center for 30 years. She began in as a classroom volunteer in Children Services and after gaining employment serving as a therapy assistant for five years, she accepted the challenge to move into Residential Group Home programming as a QIDP. She then moved into a director position where she supervised Group Homes, Supported Living, Employment Services, Health Care Management, and Music Therapy. All of these programs continue to develop as successful, dynamic opportunities for growth.
Connie received her BS in Special Education from Ball State and later in her career received her MBA from Anderson University.
Connie’s background in the disability industry is both professional and personal. She is recognized as an individual who knows and understands current industry trends, approaches, and regulations. She is passionate about Hopewell’s Mission and strives to assure that services meet timely needs and remain forward thinking. One of the things she enjoys most in her work is connecting with consumers, families, and funding representatives. She can empathize with families frustrated with the process as she and her son Eric have also navigated the world of disability services.
Connie cares deeply for what we do. She dares us to be better, not just with words, but by actions. The consumers, families, board, and staff of Hopewell Center are excited to have Connie leading us into the future.

In 1988, the Arc of Indiana started Master Trust, a trust service to allow parents to provide financial support to their children without jeopardizing their benefits. A second trust is now available with a minimum funding level of only $300. These services are provided under the expertise of The Arc to allow persons with disabilities to supplement current benefits while preserving continued eligibility.
Hopewell Center named Non-Profit of the Year
We are honored to have won Non Profit of the Year, at the 2015 Annual Awards Gala presented by the Madison County Chamber.
On a night when the theme was being “courageous,” there were countless stories of sacrifices people and companies have made to stay in business in Madison County. Take a look at Hopewell's Story!
