Mission Statement

Orchard Village partners with families and communities to optimize personal outcomes for individuals with developmental disabilities using a community-integrated approach. Orchard Village empowers people with developmental disabilities through vocational, educational, recreational, and residential programs to live their best lives.


With volunteer support, Orchard Village enables 300 men, women and children with developmental disabilities to live their best lives. Our agencies provides to those we support:

  • housing -- 12 community integrated living arrangements (CILA's); and independent, supported housing, including apartments;
  • day programs -- InOVations focuses on pre-employment skills with a goal of a competative paying job for participants; DiscOVer focuses on participants whose primary goals are social, recreational, and enrichment activities;
  • employment services -- support participate to gain integrated, competitive-wage jobs within their communities;
  • recreational therapy -- support the social and recreational needs of our program participants through activities like gardening, playing sports, competing in Special Olympics, acting in a play, and creating music and artwork;
  • behavioral health -- our new behavioral health clinic provides one-on-one and group therapy for participants suffering from mental illness;
  • an independent high school -- beyond traditional academics, students learn how to live independently, gain employment, or go on to college.
