Villa Esperanza Services serves intellectually/developmentally disabled individuals in Los Angeles and Ventura counties. Villa is a unique service provider, offering individualized programs and a continuum of care over the course of a lifetime. Our comprehensive programs for children are centralized on a single campus and include the Villa Esperanza School, the Hjelte-Phillips Speech and Language Center, and occupational therapy clinic. Our personalized programs for adults integrated throughout the community include Employment Services, family-style residential homes, independent living skills coaching, and day programs for adults and seniors. We change lives--from teaching a child with autism how to say "hello;" to giving an adult with Down syndrome the skills to earn a paycheck and the pride of having a job; to providing an intellectually disabled senior the opportunity to give back to the community through volunteering and helping others.
