What We Do
We are not only a nonprofit human services organization—we are a social impact organization. Every day, we work to change the world by improving the lives of children, families, and individuals with developmental disabilities. With more than 200 staff, a network of over 400 care providers, foster and adoptive parents, and a host of volunteers, advocates, and partners, it is work that we cannot accomplish alone.
Hope and belonging is for all of us. With your help, we can make this vision a reality for countless Virginians who cannot imagine it today. We offer the following services throughout our footprint: Adoption (pre- and post-adoption services), OPTIONS Day Support and Sponsored Provider homes for adults with intellectual or developmental disabilities, Foster Care, Independent Living, Outpatient Counseling, Family Engagement, Intensive In-Home, Group Therapy, Intensive Care Coordination, and Post-Placement Support.
Our #GivingTuesdayGreaterLYH greatest need is communication boards for the adults in our Developmental Disabilities programs.
