Villa Esperanza Services is committed to providing individualized, accessible, affordable housing for those with intellectual and developmental disabilities. Through Villa’s various levels of support and assistance, individuals are reaching their greatest level of independence; living, working, playing and being active in their community.

Villa’s residential program includes seven group homes and six independent living apartments. All homes are located in the Pasadena area. Villa also offers Independent Living Skills (ILS) and Supported Living Skills (Pasadena Only) Programs for individuals living independently who need ongoing support.

In all of Villa’s homes we practice a person-centered approach, providing residents with enriching social and community activities and educational opportunities, to nurture and promote individual choice.

Each intimate home setting has qualified trained staff assisting residents in all areas of living, such as:

  • Independent living resources and transitional support
  • Home and community safety training
  • Budgeting and money management
  • Food, nutrition and meal preparation training
  • Public transportation resources and travel training
  • Socialization and communication skill-building
  • Housekeeping and personal hygiene support

Villa Esperanza Services is a non-profit organization with contracted services with regional centers. Private-pay options are also available.
