Celebrating Independence

HopeTree Family Services established its residential services for individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities in 1992 with the basic principle that individuals will be provided resources that allow for and encourage choices and decisions in planning for their lives. HopeTree provides a comfortable and supporting environment where individuals can make choices in activities of daily living and are professionally supported, along with their parents/guardians and their circle of support in planning their future. The person-centered planning process considers the person’s strengths, capabilities, preferences, lifestyle and cultural background. Through the provision of a person-centered model, each person is provided with an environment that allows for maximum quality of life and growth through individual choices and life desires. Services focus on the individual and will promote quality and progress towards outcomes by addressing needs for choice, relationships, lifestyle, health, well-being, rights, and satisfaction of life.

Our 18 Group Homes scattered throughout Virginia are licensed and monitored by the Virginia Department of Behavioral Health and Developmental Services.
