Our objectives are to provide training, treatment, and support to strengthen community based living. VFS, Inc. provides skills training in the environments where the individual will live and work. We facilitate community relationships through various methods of advocacy and one-to-one consultation. Our staff monitors health and physical condition, and provides assistance as needed, with transportation, personal care, and activities of daily living. Visions Family Services empowers adults with intellectual disabilities or ID/MH to realize personal freedoms, individual rights, and responsibilities by supporting the individuality of each person through the development of individualized service plans that incorporate choices and interests.
- Special needs of the resident
- Staff’s special personality traits
- Staff’s unique skills, experience and training
Currently VFS operates homes in the Petersburg, Colonial Heights, Chesterfield, Richmond and Henrico County areas. Our homes typically:
- house 2 - 6 residents which is less than other programs
- offer private rooms for residents where this is a critical need
- administer one on one goal training and skill building in a family setting
- welcome a series of visits to home to ensure a smooth transition for resident
- will arrange trips and provide transportation for residents to visit family and loved ones
Unlike other residential services simply filling beds is not our goal. Instead, we make it a point to learn who the individuals are we will be serving. This approach allows us to engage in fruitful discussions to determine which home will give residents the best quality of life. VFS Residential Services for Persons with Intellectual or Developmental Disabilities empowers residents to realize personal freedoms, individual rights, and responsibilities by supporting the individuality of each person through the development of individualized service plans that incorporate choices and interests.
