Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

The Village Learning Center, Inc., doing business as The Village Centers, was established by parents who recognized the significant need to have direct care and residential services for people with disabilities in the Lake Houston community in 2000. The Village Centers' primary focus is to enhance the lives of people with disabilities and support their families through a wide range of programs. We are unique in our area because we aim to be an accessible service, regardless of the client's funding source or medical needs. We offer assisted living, independent living, vocational, transportation, and day programming services for our clients.

Charting impact

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

We provide options for people with disabilities to attend programming and live in their home communities. Our primary goals are to increase inclusion and job growth through vocational services and to invent new possibilities for our clients. For our families, we offer respite, daycare, and educational resources. Because we can be their partner in caregiving, many parents and legal guardians can return to work and can bring additional talent into the workforce and better financially support their household.

Our programming is robust and wide-reaching. We accept an individual with government-funded care such as Home and Community-Based Services, Texas Home Living, Community Living Assistance and Support Services, Medicaid, and private payment. We also partner with the City of Houston for building low-cost residential units that allow our clients to live more independently within their home community. We provide a Day Health and Activity Service program that engages clients with daily activities and ensures at least one healthy meal a day. We are able to provide vocational programming through both community partners and our Village Thrift Shop.

While we welcome individuals with government-funded resources, a significant portion of our operating costs must be covered by other sources. Financial support through our community partnerships, grants, and individual donors are imperative for our continued success.

We have served our community for over twenty years. We started with one bus that transported our clients to activities, outside day programs, and church on Sunday. We have grown to seven buildings and twelve busses. Each one of our facilities houses a specific program. Our Stoney Glen House provides overnight respite and assisted living for fourteen full-time residents who need nursing care. Our Hickory Glen apartments provide reduced cost rental programs and independent living for individuals and families. Our Day Activity Center serves up to eighty clients at a time with supervised activities, crafts, field trips, and community outings. Our DAHS program can serve up to sixty people a day and is similar to our Day Activity Center with additional nursing care. Our Community Center, Administration Building, and Thrift Shop all serve to support our ever-expanding vocational program. We are able to provide job training that leads to paying jobs in our community. All of our programs give our clients a place to feel welcome and a part of a community. We will continue to develop programs as the population of individuals with developmental disabilities continues to increase.

We are continuing to grow to meet the changing needs of our families, community, and clients. As we have aged, so have many of our clients we have served for many years. We have long term planning in place for Seniors with developmental disabilities who require different kinds of care, including residential and day programming. We desire to support a behavioral program for families and clients with more significant behavior issues that may keep them from engaging more frequently in the community or hold jobs.
