Organizations Filed Purposes: LFSVA expresses God's love by providing services and assistance to empower communities, families and individuals in their journey to well-being. Our services are open to all.

Our 420+ employees created abundant possibilities for the more than 1,000 people that we served daily in 2018-2019. We have seen lives transformed and productive pathways discovered. Our services are born of faith and open to all.

Developmental Services: LFSVA offers a wide continuum of care for individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities so that they may live in their preferred community setting. Our services, which include group homes, day support, community coaching, community engagement, adult foster care (Family Care Homes), skilled nursing, therapeutic consultation and in-home support, use a person-centered approach that helps individuals meet their medical, dietary, behavioral, personal care and daily living needs, as well as achieve the maximum degree of independence and inclusion in their local community. All services are for adults 18 years of age or older, except in-home support which is provided to all ages. Services are available in more than one-half of Virginia's cities and counties. We now have 202 Family Care Homes and during the year ended June 30, 2019 we helped 368 individuals have fuller, more complete lives.

Minnick Schools - LFSVA Minnick Schools are licensed through the Virginia Department of Education and accredited through the Virginia Association of Independent Special Education Facilities and are located in Roanoke (2 sites), Harrisonburg, Wytheville, Wise (2 sites) and Bristol. Our schools work with public schools in 31 localities, serving students across a wide range of disabilities. During the 2019 school year we helped 261 students reach their academic and behavioral goals, and, 22 children were able to transition back to their home schools. All Minnick Schools offer individualized instruction and the staff works closely with the public schools that place the students, and also with the students' families. Academic instruction is aligned with the state Standards of Learning. In four locations we offer students the opportunity to work in a PAES lab, a vocational classroom that helps students prepare for the world of work. With the goal that students will transfer their new behavioral and life skills from the classroom to home and from home to the community, we give children many opportunities to learn and practice. Our Adapted Programs offer functional life curriculum geared to the unique needs of students and their families. All academic and behavioral instruction is based on the principles of Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA), successful, research-based strategies that systematically teach behavior in a highly-structured environment, and all staff are trained in ABA strategies. To prevent more restrictive out-of-school placements, we offer educational aides to assist students in the program.

Treatment Foster Care & Adoption - LFSVA recruits and trains therapeutic foster parents so that children in foster care will have a stable, loving home environment while they are healing from the situation that caused the family disruption. We provide in-home services and emergency access to an agency social worker 24/7. Our goal is to help children move toward permanency. Because many of our families adopt the children they foster, we offer families the option to be certified as both foster and adoptive parents. Our in-depth training on parenting and support throughout the adoption process is considered one of the best such programs in the state. During the year ended June 30, 2019, we helped 35 children in foster care find homes in which to heal and grow. In addition to providing services to individuals and couples who wish to adopt from foster care, we also offer outpatient mental health services and post-adoption case management by adoption-competent professionals who understand the unique nature of building a family through adoption. During the year ended June 30, 2019, 42 individuals received post-adoption counseling, 16 families and 22 children received post-adoption case management, and twelve children found permanent, loving families through LFSVA. In addition, we provided Training for Adoption Competency (TAC) for 26 mental health professionals to increase the number of adoption-competent mental health clinicians to serve adoptive families in Virginia.
