Our Services

Sponsored Residential

For individuals who are seeking a family like atmosphere in which to live, SSVA offers Sponsored Residential Services in Coastal Virginia, the Eastern Shore, and Central Virginia. Residential Sponsors open their homes to one or two individuals receiving services.

Sponsored settings vary based on individual needs and preferences. For example, one individual may prefer the independence of having his or her own wing in the home where they reside while another individual enjoys being right in the middle of family activities.

Residential Sponsors are able to support a wide variety of physical, mental health, and intellectual needs. Some Sponsors are Registered Nurses and can support individuals with more intensive medical needs. All therapeutic approaches are based on person centered planning and positive practices.

Sponsored Homes fall under the same regulations and oversight agencies as other waiver based residential services.
