About DePaul

Our vision: opening doors to hope and belonging.
Our values: fairness, integrity, respect, safety, and trust.
Our goal: to be a touchstone provider of services to individuals with unique challenges.

For nearly 40 years, DePaul Community Resources has opened doors to hope and belonging for families and individuals across Central and Southwest Virginia.

We are not only a nonprofit human services organization—we are a social impact organization. Every day we work to change the world by improving the lives of children, families, and individuals with developmental disabilities. With more than 200 staff, a network of over 400 care providers, foster and adoptive parents, and a host of volunteers, advocates, and partners, it is work that we cannot accomplish alone. Hope and belonging is for all of us—with your help, we can make this vision a reality for countless Virginians who cannot imagine it today.
