Hope Village

The Foundation for Hope Village is a nonprofit operating Hope Village in Friendswood, Texas. Hope Village provides services to individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities from all across the state. Our services consist of 5 long-term care homes for up to 65 villagers. We also provide a Day Program for up to 40 non-residential individuals. Hope Village was founded in 1967 and has grown from 1 home to a beautiful 18-acre campus consisting of 5 homes, a developmental center, a recreation and swim center, a ceramics center, gardens, a resale shop, and an Education and Community building. 45 full-time and 4 part-time dedicated and experienced staff work to achieve the Foundation’s mission of providing superior, yet affordable care for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities. As similar programs in the state have become unaffordable to the average family, Hope Village remains committed to providing a growing number of services at an affordable price.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Intellectual disability is a condition characterized by significant limitations in both intellectual functioning (such as learning, problem-solving, and judgment) and adaptive behavior (activities of daily life such as communication and independent living) that originates before the age of 22. Over 6.5 million people, nationwide, and more than 485,000 in Texas are affected. With proper support, most people with an intellectual disability live full and satisfying lives. Hope Village believes that only meeting the basic physical needs of our residents is not sufficient; it is our duty to enable our villagers to reach their full potential and function at their highest level.

The Founders, Bill and Lucille Williams, the Board of Directors and Administrators of The Foundation for Hope Village, Inc. have always believed that Hope Village should be affordable to families of modest means.

The rate that Hope Village assesses for tuition is typically only 1/3 the rate of Long-Term Care private facilities, in the Houston area. The Foundation currently supplements 50% of the actual cost of tuition for each villager, at a cost of $729,350 each year.

“Many people we support are living well into their 70s and 80s, and are outliving loved ones, including their parents. It is crucial to recognize the losses people with IDD endure across the span of their lives.”

With 54% of our villagers between the ages of 40 to 59, 22% between the ages of 60-69, and 11% between 70-87, the above quote just confirms what we have seen here at Hope Village.

Scholarships are offered to Villagers who lose their families, not only have they lost their loved ones but also the resources that paid for their homes here at Hope Village. Or, as seen above, as our villagers age so do their families, and their ability to pay the cost of our services diminishes. With 50% of our villagers having been here at Hope Village for more than 20 years and 13% for more than 40 years. The Foundations board of directors is dedicated to ensuring a forever home for each of them. These scholarships not only cover the cost of housing but of health care, nutritional meals, clothing, and participation in the Hope Village programs.
