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.

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

  • Treatment Foster Care introduces children who need stable, loving homes to families who can provide them. We operate Foster Care offices in Salem and Chester.
  • Residential Care provides long-term opportunities for the spiritual, social, psychological, and emotional growth of at-risk youth.
  • Independent Living offers a way for youth to gradually join the adult world of independence through life skills classes.
  • The WOODS Program (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 which operates 17 Christian group homes across Virginia.
