About DePaul

Our vision: opening doors to hope and belonging.
Our values: fairness, integrity, respect, safety, and trust.

For 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.

DePaul Community Resources is a nonprofit, 501(c)(3) organization.

Each team has its own unique purpose and brings a distinct value to our work. As a 501(c)3 nonprofit, DePaul is led by a volunteer board of directors. The board is tasked with establishing the strategic direction for the organization to ensure DePaul is poised for a vital future in the decades ahead. The executive leadership team is responsible for ensuring organizational strategy, organizational health, and organizational structure. Under the direction of the president and CEO, the executive team provides direction, protection, and order for the organization and to ensure alignment of all departments as DePaul heads toward our north star of hope and belonging.
