Villa Esperanza Services
In an environment of love, care and hope, Villa Esperanza Services provides the tools and support necessary for children, adults and seniors with special needs to achieve their goals, live fulfilling lives and embrace a sense of belonging and acceptance.
Villa serves individuals with intellectual/developmental disabilities including more than twenty-five different diagnoses. Our wide variety of programs and services assist infants to seniors in addition to providing support and encouragement to their families.
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.
Our customized and comprehensive programs for children centralized within the community:
• Villa Esperanza School
• Hjelte-Phillips Speech and Language Center
• Occupational therapy clinic
• Behavioral therapy
• Early intervention services
Our personalized programs for adults and seniors integrated throughout the community:

Villa excels in offering progressive and innovative approaches and solutions. Our ability to forecast and meet the changing needs of our clients has established us as a unique service provider, offering individualized programs and a continuum of care over the course of a lifetime.
