Lutheran Family Services of Virginia > Available Group Homes

Group homes provide a caring environment for individuals to thrive & meet their goals

We provide a family atmosphere where individuals are encouraged to use their talents to realize their dreams and goals. We also try to generate a sense of accomplishment by involving and encouraging individuals to participate in the care of their home environment. All of this is done in a clean, safe environment and includes nutritional meals, social interaction, support with daily living and fun.

This service provides group homes for individuals with intellectual disabilities or developmental disabilities who are 18 years or older. This service offers 24-hour support in clean, healthy, safe settings of no more than four individuals per home. Skill-building activities are provided to help the individuals meet their medical, dietary, behavioral, personal care and daily living needs.

Skill-building is also provided to build independence and to promote involvement in the home and in the community. Staffs are on site 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
