STRONG Program at HOPE Semper

STRONG Program at HOPE Semper


What is the STRONG Program?
STRONG stands for Successfully Treating and Reaching Our Next Generation. We chose this name because it expresses the values and mission of our program and organization. The STRONG program recognizes the unique value of each child and acknowledges that each child deserves a chance at a successful future. It is no secret that some children struggle with mental health or behavioral problems and need help in learning how to make positive changes.


The goal of the STRONG program is to partner with schools and families to provide these children with the best treatment available, allowing each child to reach his or her full potential. This is achieved by using empirically-validated treatment combined with the love and values of Christ. Including God’s love and grace into treatment allows us to reach children on all levels as we help them grow STRONGer—emotionally, behaviorally, and spiritually.



HOPE Christian School: Semper is the first school to host the STRONG program and is located at 3040 W. Capitol Drive in Milwaukee. The STRONG program at HOPE Semper provides treatment for up to 10 elementary school-aged children in the morning and up to 10 middle school-aged children in the afternoon.


Many of these students attend school at HOPE Semper, but others are enrolled at the urban schools with whom we partner. We also accept outside referrals for the program. For more information about the STRONG program at HOPE Semper, please call 800.438.1772.
