Established by Kay Reed Mirick in 1994, Support Services of Virginia, Inc. (SSVA) is one of the oldest, privately owned Medicaid Waiver providers in the Commonwealth of Virginia.
Kay Reed Mirick was a trailblazer in Person Centered Practices. She believed that people living with disabilities have the right to the lives of their choosing, supported by services designed specifically for them – a practice that continues to this day. Kay also developed Positive Practices, SSVA’s unique approach to support and leadership.
Today, the team at Support Services of Virginia, Inc. continues to pioneer in the field of disabilities services. Since Kay’s death in 2005, Chip Dodd and Andie Plumley continue to navigate SSVA in fresh and innovative directions with the help of their amazing team of professionals–all while remaining true to Kay’s vision.
SSVA is a unique group of Professionals who have come together for a common purpose – to realize success by helping others realize theirs! We come from a wide variety of educational, experiential and cultural backgrounds and celebrate our diversity! SSVA fosters a climate of positive energy – although we are dedicated to our profession we are also committed to ensuring that everyone feels welcomed, valued, and a part of our community.
The SSVA team is proud to serve our communities in Coastal Virginia, the Eastern Shore and Lynchburg, Virginia. Honoring Kay’s legacy, our team always utilizes positive practices techniques when interacting with other employees, customers and community members.
We at SSVA consider ourselves equals, regardless of title, background, ability or culture.
