HopeTree Family Services improves the lives of at-risk youth, and adults with intellectual disabilities, by providing safe and positive places to live, learn, and grow.
Your gift to HopeTree supports a variety of programs across the Roanoke Valley and beyond. From residential and foster programs for children, to academic programs like HopeTree Academy, and community-based group homes and in-home support for adults with intellectual disabilities, HopeTree is “growing hope for a better life” across Virginia. Beginning as the Baptist Orphanage of Virginia in 1890, HopeTree serves hundreds of people per year without regard to race, religion, gender, or socioeconomic status.
Your support makes stories like these possible:
Here are some of the programs your gift will support:
HopeTree Foster Care helps meet the needs of children who require individualized care and attention in a stable, Christian family setting. Our goal is to create a foster home environment which enhances the emotional, educational, physical, social, and spiritual development of every child.
Residents in our Salem Residential and HopeTree WOODS programs learn independent living skills as they move toward graduation and adulthood in highly structured and supervised environments. We also provide individual, group, and family counseling services for clients of our residential programs. Services are also offered to the community on an out-patient basis.
HopeTree Academy helps students grow into positive, productive citizens. We believe that all students – regardless of background or history or disability – can learn to succeed. From our campus in Salem, HopeTree Academy serves day students from Roanoke and surrounding jurisdictions, and residential students from across Virginia. HopeTree Academy is licensed by the Virginia Department of Education to serve grades 6-12, including disabled learners for their specific learning disability, emotional disturbance, intellectual disability, or other health impairment.
HopeTree DDM creates living environments in which adults with intellectual disabilities can experience the most complete life possible. We believe our residents are capable, integral members of a community and can contribute as functional members of society. HopeTree DDM also provides short-term respite care, in-home residential support services, and long-term planning assistance. We currently operate 19 group homes, including 5 in the Roanoke Valley.
HopeTree’s Christian Education program provides opportunities for our youth and adults to participate in regular chapel services and Bible studies on campus and throughout the community. Ministry groups and individuals from local churches and organizations also volunteer their time to provide programs and activities for our residents. While HopeTree is a Christian organization, we honor the religious preferences of everyone we serve.
