What makes Hope House different?

Hope House Foundation provides supported living services to adults with intellectual or developmental disabilities exclusively in their own homes or apartments — regardless of how complex their disabilities may be. And we’re the only organization in Virginia to do so.

Skeptical? Initially, many parents and family members of the 130 people Hope House supports were, too. Their children had aged out of Hampton Roads’ special education system, and were ready for adult services and support. Many worried that cognitive limitations, mental illness, medical challenges, behavioral issues, or other conditions, such as autism, would make it impossible for their loved ones to live safely in their own apartments.

But talk to those people today, and they’ll tell you how their children have not just succeeded, but blossomed. That’s because Hope House offers more than a safe and secure environment. We offer privacy, choice, and the opportunity to pursue a meaningful life. 

To find out if Hope House is right for your family member, please contact Susan Henderson, our Services Director, at 757.625.6161 x512 or shenderson@hope-house.org. Or click here to learn more about navigating Virginia’s Medicaid Waiver system.
