Developmental Disabilities Ministry

In 1992, HopeTree Family Services established the Developmental Disabilities Ministry to provide homes for adults with intellectual disabilities and support for their families. We currently operate 17 Group Homes throughout the Commonwealth.

Our purpose is to create an environment in which adults with intellectual disabilities can experience the most complete life possible. We believe our residents are capable, integral members of a community and can contribute as functional members of society.

HopeTree also provides short-term respite care, in-home residential support services, respite camps, and long-term planning assistance. HopeTree is continuing to expand the DDM program by adding more group homes and new services on a regular basis.

Greg has lived with us since the DDM Program began. Here’s a glimpse into his everyday life:
