HumanKind currently operates group homes across the state of Virginia. The group home setting provides around-the clock care for up to six individuals with developmental disabilities. While some group homes serve a particular gender, type of disability, or level of functioning, our homes are inclusive, and provide care for adults across this continuum.
HumanKind provides a variety of experiences for our individuals, tailored to their interests and goals. Individuals work, attend Day Support programs or volunteer throughout the week. We plan yearly vacations for each of our homes and engage in regular community outings.
Our staff receive extensive training in Medication Management, documentation guidelines, CPR/First Aid, de-escalation strategies and person-centered thinking. Individualized Service Plans (ISP’s) are developed by a support team dedicated to the individual’s personal goals and interests, with a focus on skill-development and a high quality of life.
Our homes are licensed by the Virginia Department of Behavioral Health and Developmental Services (DBHDS) and we adhere to all Human Rights regulations as well. We are committed to excellence in our service provision and focus on quality of life for each of our individuals. The primary funding source for this service is the Medicaid Community Living Waiver, but for those ineligible for the Medicaid waiver, some families choose to pay out of pocket for our services.
