At Heart Havens, we know that home is more than just a house. Home is your friends, your church, your neighborhood. It can be a game of cornhole in the back yard or bowling at an alley across town. It can be a barber shop uptown where you talk sports with the guys, or a coffee shop with your best friend on a Saturday afternoon. Home is feeling like you belong, and that's where your heart is.

Heart Havens is a non-profit organization that provides residential support to adults with a developmental disability, but it's so much more than just a roof and a bed. At Heart Havens, we empower people to discover what they love and pursue their hopes and passions. Whether that's getting involved in community theater, giving back to the community through a pet food drive, or simply having a party with friends, we support people with a developmental disability as they make their goals and dreams happen. Heart Havens operates homes in Richmond, Stuarts Draft, Lynchburg, and Virginia Beach. All of the homes have the capacity to house four residents, who are fully supervised at all times with dedicated and experienced staff.

Heart Havens encourages community integration through participation. Our guiding values include integrity, respect, empowerment, empathy and accountability. Heart Havens offers intensive residential support and training to individuals with a developmental disability in group homes across Virginia.  We use a person-centered process to ensure that every individual is able to pursue his or her goals and dreams. We work in partnership with the local Community Service Boards, the United Methodist Church, and other community stakeholders to promote a seamless service delivery for all the individuals we support. Although we were founded by the Virginia Conference of the United Methodist Church, we have been a separate 501c3 organization since 2003.

We are proud to hold the GuideStar Gold Seal and to be a Better Business Bureau Accredited Charity.
