What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Developmental Disabilities Services

Our campus is a learning laboratory for integrating skills into life. For more than 30 years, we have been making a big difference for kids and young adults with autism and other developmental disabilities. Our Sarah Dooley Center for Autism serves children and youth ages 5 to 22, building real-world skills that lead to self-sufficiency - all in a structured, nurturing environment.In our Early Autism Services, we serve children ages 2 to 5 who are medically diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder. This cutting-edge program is one of the first of its kind in Central Virginia. Day Support Services offers weekday after-school and all-day programs including recreational services when school is not in session. Our In-Home Behavioral Treatment program helps children with behavioral difficulties, communication limitations, developmental delays, and intellectual disabilities; and also provides support and training for families and caregivers.

Population(s) Served
Children and youth

Education is at the heart of everything we do. Whether it’s academic education for children or job training and life skills for adults, we tailor our approach to each student’s learning style.

Our instructional team is licensed by the Virginia Department of Education and is passionate about helping our students learn, grow and thrive.

Brook Road Academy

Located on the Villa campus, Brook Road Academy is a non-traditional, college-preparatory middle and high school. We provide a holistic approach to education to a diverse group of students who haven’t been successful in traditional classrooms.
To maintain an intimate learning environment, we cap total school enrollment for grades 7 through 12 at 50 students. This allows teachers to focus on each student’s individual needs and form strong relationships with their families.

In addition to working with our students’ unique talents and learning styles to help them find their place in the greater community, our teachers understand that learning is about engagement.

Our students take responsibility for their education and set their own goals for learning. As a result, their GPAs typically increase from previous schools and many move on to higher education.

Brook Road Academy is fully licensed and accredited.

Dooley School at St. Joseph’s Villa
Dooley School at St. Joseph’s Villa is one of our longest-running services. We are small enough to meet the individual needs of students and large enough to provide a high-quality educational and social experience. As a K-12 school, we primarily serve students diagnosed with emotional disabilities, specific learning disabilities, autism spectrum disorder, intellectual disabilities and other health impairments. Staff-to-student ratio ranges from 1:6 to 1:8 depending on disabilities being served in the classroom.

Local school systems place students with Dooley School at St. Joseph’s Villa to help address academic and behavioral challenges. Students have access to the Villa’s integrated support services to prepare them for a life of independence beyond school. Counselors on staff help students develop self-esteem, learn how to build relationships and be successful in their community.

Dooley Center for Alternative Education
Dooley Center for Alternative Education serves middle and high school students who have been suspended or expelled from public school, or are returning from a state learning center. The curriculum covers all areas of academic study while stressing the importance of making positive choices and providing students with support and guidance within a structured environment. We strive to help students successfully transition back to their public schools. Staff to student ratio is 1:10.

Career and Transition Services
Our Career and Transition Services (CATS) program helps youth and young adults acquire the skills they need for employment. We help those with severe emotional, behavioral and academic challenges as well as those with moderate to severe developmental disabilities.

Our goal is to help each participant envision and attain a productive and stimulating future. To do this, our staff conduct an initial assessment and help the participant create a plan. Participants gain problem solving, communication, and networking skills as well as knowledge of career and life opportunities through classroom instruction and hands-on experience in our innovative on-campus work centers:

Culinary program
Community garden
Student snack preparation program
Campus-wide shredding program
Recycling program
We also partner with local businesses and colleges to give participants experience in real-world work and education environments through the Villa Pros career mentoring program.

St. Joseph’s Villa is approved by the Virginia Department for Aging and Rehabilitative Services (DARS) as a provider of rehabilitative services, including Work Adjustment Training.

Flagler Housing and Homeless Services provides rapid re-housing, homeless prevention services, and support services to homeless families in the Richmond and Petersburg areas. Rapid re-housing helps homeless families and individuals obtain permanent rental housing as quickly as possible with integrated support services based on need. Such services include: case management; linking families to community resources; employment assistance; budgeting assistance; and education around tenant responsibilities. According to the National Alliance to End Homelessness (NAEH), rapid re-housing reduces the length of time people remain in homeless shelters in addition to associated public and personal costs. Flagler received the NAEH’s Champion of Change Award in 2016 and was the only nonprofit honoree in the country. Access to homeless services is through the central point of entry in each region. For more information, see the Villa’s website.

Population(s) Served
Adults

We provide educational, after-school and residential programs to help children and adults overcome negative behaviors and severe mental health issues. Our goal is to provide them with the tools they need to lead healthy, productive lives. We offer mental health services in a variety of settings: in the home, in after-school programs, and in our Crisis Stabilization Unit.

Crisis Stabilization Services
When a child or adolescent experiences a traumatic event or recurring feelings of depression, hopelessness or anxiety, a crisis cycle may develop that puts him or her at risk of being removed from their family and possibly their community. St. Joseph’s Villa believes in providing supports for these individuals when life circumstances become too tough to handle.

The Villa offers Crisis Stabilization Services for children ages 5 to 17 who are experiencing a mental health crisis. We operate a six-bed residential Crisis Stabilization Unit (CSU) on our campus in partnership with Richmond Behavioral Health Authority and the Region IV Community Service Boards. We also offer non-residential day programs in the CSU. Crisis Stabilization Services allow families to keep their children in their communities and avoid the much higher costs of an unnecessary hospitalization. It is the first facility of its kind in Central Virginia.

Therapeutic Day Treatment & Intensive In-Home Services
In our therapeutic day treatment program, we assess children with behavioral disorders who also have a diagnosed mental illness. We offer therapeutic services during the school year as well as in the summer, including:

Individual therapy
Group therapy
Psycho-educational therapy
Family counseling
For instances when the after-school treatment program isn’t sufficient, we offer in-home counseling to examine and help correct problems within the family that contribute to negative behaviors.

Intensive In-Home Services from St. Joseph’s Villa provide support, guidance, skills training to children who are at risk of being removed from their home because of serious behavioral problems. Our In-Home clinicians are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week. With this additional support we help families develop new ways of dealing with old behaviors to break the cycle of destructive behavior.

Outpatient Counseling
We provide confidential counseling in individual and group settings. Our licensed clinical mental health professionals help people experiencing emotional difficulties to overcome problems, improve daily functioning and achieve more fulfilling lives.

We serve children, youth, adults, couples and families with a wide variety of emotional and social difficulties, including:

Stress
Anxiety
Depression
Anger issues
Effects of abuse and trauma
Family conflicts or parenting issues
Problems coping with school, work or relationships

Mental Health Skill-building Services
Through supportive case management, the Villa enables individuals to achieve and maintain stability, independence, and success in the home and in the community. Our services help those with emotional, behavioral, and mental health issues develop more positive and healthy behaviors. Individuals learn to function as independently as possible in the least restrictive community setting. Case managers provide diagnostic assessments, transitional living planning, transportation assistance and other services.

Intensive Care Coordination
Intensive Care Coordination (ICC) is provided to families with youth ages 5-17 who are at risk of or have recently had an out of home placement. In many cases the entire family is in crisis by the time the youth has reached the point of needing out of home placement, due to the stress of coping with the youth’s issues, frequent contact with community providers, and isolation from the community and family.

The ICC approach is unique in that the family leads the process by voicing needs, making choices, and building strengths in a safe, collaborative environment.

ICC focuses on gathering a team of individuals chosen by the family to help them achieve self-efficacy as they work towards their family purpose. Together with the youth and family, the team identifies needs, sets goals, creates a network of support, and develops an action plan based on the family’s culture and strengths.
