HopeTree’s Mission

The mission of HopeTree Family Services is to provide Christian residential, educational, and support services to at-risk children and youth, and to adults with intellectual disabilities throughout Virginia.

Did you know…

Thousands of at-risk children in Virginia experience family crisis, abuse, neglect and behavioral challenges every day, and are searching for an alternative place to live. And more than 6,100 Virginians with an intellectual disability are on waiting lists for community-based services.

HopeTree Family Services offers a wide range of ministries for at-risk children and youth and their families across Virginia, including:

  • HopeTree Foster Care introduces children who need stable, loving homes to families who can provide them.
  • HopeTree Academy provides a fully-accredited secondary educational program for our residents and day students from surrounding jurisdictions while they cope with their individual circumstances.
  • Residential Care provides long-term opportunities for the spiritual, social, psychological, and emotional growth of at-risk youth.
  • HopeTree WOODS (Wilderness Outdoor Opportunity Discovery School) teaches discipline through high-adventure learning in a highly structured environment.

We also serve the needs of adults with intellectual disabilities and their families through our Developmental Disabilities Ministry (DDM), which operates Christian group homes across Virginia. Our DDM program also provides Respite, In-Home, and summer camp services.
