Lutheran Family Services of Virginia > Developmental Services

Offering a community of care for adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities

Through our driving belief that everyone is worthy and deserves the best, we offer a wide community of care for those who need it most. Lutheran Family Services helps adults and children with intellectual and developmental disabilities gain lives of abundance, well-being and grace, close to family and loved ones. Broadening our programs to include services to adults with disabilities is a natural extension of our work with children with disabilities and their families. We rejoice that we can help individuals live and work in their communities with dignity safety and hope. Group homes, day support, in-home care and many other services are available in the Bedford, Charlottesville, Danville, Martinsville, Lynchburg, Norfolk/Virginia Beach, Richmond, Roanoke and Fredericksburg areas.
