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. 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.

Villa's first priority is to ensure the safety and well-being of all our participants and staff, while still providing the support required by our individuals with special needs. The need for Villa’s services remains unchanged as we have pivoted to providing virtual services to our school programs, adult day programs, and Independent Living Skills programs, as well as 24-hour care for all our adults living in our residential homes and in person services for our Employment participants working as essential workers.

Villa's Diamond Heist at Villa Manor virtual event will raise funds so we can continue this important work. All proceeds support Villa's programs for individuals with intellectual/developmental disabilities. We are grateful for your support! Together, we will ensure that Villa can continue providing and caring for our children, adults, and seniors and their families when they need us the most.
