HOPE at Home

HOPE at Home provides a small, annual grant available to Sudbury organizations serving vulnerable populations in town. 

 

The 2024 HOPE at HOME grant was provided to the Sudbury Police and Fire Departments' Safety Net Tracking Program to buy 3 location tracking bracelets. The Safety Net program is a tracking system to help public safety personnel to find people with Alzheimer’s, autism or other cognitive impairments who are at greater risk of elopement. This service is free to Sudbury residents who qualify. Learn more about Safety Net Tracking here.

The 2023 HOPE at HOME grant was awarded to support the Sudbury Police Department's Co-Response Jail Diversion Program.  This program provides a clinician to ride along with police officers.  These programs are founded on the understanding that by working together, clinicians and law enforcement can respond most appropriately to the needs of individuals in the community who are in crisis. Advocates' award-winning Co-Response model requires extensive collaboration between the clinician and the patrol division. Our clinicians train and work alongside police officers to help respond to crises and determine appropriate outcomes. Cross-training between the police and these embedded clinicians has resulted in mutual understanding and respect for each other’s roles.

Other past recipients have included the Council on Aging, community first responders and after-school programs.
