Dedicated to Promoting the Unique Abilities of Our Residents.

A Group Home for Individuals with Intellectual Disabilities


We are a community-based intellectual disability program supporting citizens of the Commonwealth of Virginia and licensed by the Virginia Department of Behavioral Health and Developmental Services.

Providing a full range of residential service opportunities for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities, Home Is Where the Heart Is has a team approach of service delivery.  Our approach requires that comprehensive services are based upon the individual’s needs, choices, and interests. Our intents are always to provide the maximum opportunity for development while making sure that each individual has the freedom to continually grow and identify any potential for happiness.  


We assess needs and services to ensure appropriate service delivery to individuals. We are focused on freedoms, community, normalization, self- advocacy, less restrictions, and last but certain not least, dignity.  Our programs are designed to enhance the level of social, cognitive, and physical abilities of every individual so that they are just as much as productive citizens as everyone else.


These programs are developed in response to requests from the needs of citizens of the Commonwealth of Virginia. Home Is Where the Heart Is cooperates with local, state, and federal  agencies, as well as private agencies.
