We provide an array of support services to people who have Intellectual or Developmental Disabilities. (I/DD). We have group homes (6), apartments (3); provide crisis stabilization services, as well as In Home Supportive Services throughout Northern Virginia.

People are supported to become active, healthy, happy members of their community.

Individualized supports for each person, to include behavior management, help with hygiene, and all activities of daily living, skill building, medication administration, crisis stabilization, managing medical needs, health and safety training, transportation, pursuit of natural supports, community integration. Our highly trained, caring DSP staff assists and supports each person according to their needs, while teaching them to do whatever they can do for themselves. We provide beautiful homes and apartments for them to live in. Additionally, we provide In Home Supportive Services to people who live with their family, friends, or on their own in the same manner as we do in group homes.
Patterns vary according to each person's needs. Group homes and apartments are typically staffed around the clock, with the usual ratio of 1 staff to 3 people. In Home Supports are provided on a 1 staff to 1 person ratio.
We currently have a tri-annual license for our group homes and apartments. In the year 2016 we added crisis stabilization services and In Home Supportive Services.
