Department of Behavioral Health and Developmental Services (DBHDS) is the Virginia state agency responsible for licensing your DD or ID group home and monitoring it regularly after the initial licensing. They are the authority governing group homes and many other program operated within Virginia.

While Virginia DBHDS programs are plentiful, the baby boomer population with certainly test the strength of this agency in the near future. Between 2010 and 2050, the U.S. population is projected to grow from 310 million to 439 million, an increase of 42 percent. The nation will also become more racially and ethnically diverse, with the aggregate minority population projected to become the majority in 2042. The population is also expected to become much older, with nearly one in five U.S. residents aged 65 and older in 2030. This is great news for anyone desiring to enter the personal care business arena and looking to embark upon a level of freedom that only can be achieved through business ownership.

In fact, starting your own business is one of the most powerful ways to take control of your life and make extra money month after month. You can start with just a few hours a week and work toward building something that will change you and your family’s life forever. And best of all, you get to choose your hours, take vacations and come back when you get back.

You know this, yet haven’t started. Why? Excuses. The other option is that you have been listening to friend and family member negativity. But maybe not…it could be something else.

It’s totally normal. Each day my inbox is filled with people telling me why they haven’t started a business yet. And each day I offer solutions so they can adopt the mindsets and systems needed to reach their goals. That’s why Nursing & Behavioral Health Services was formed – to smash the common roadblocks and help you how to get past it all so you can get right to living life freely and controlling your future.

We take our client hand and literally hold it through the entire process – helping them with every facet of the licensing process including entity formation, zoning, home readiness and compliance, development of program materials and marketing to include website, business card, brochure and commercial design.

There is no better time than now to turn in those key and badges, surrender the medication cart and swipe that time clock for the very last time. Licensing a DD/ID Group Home in Virginia is one of the best decision you could ever make. In fact, Virginia is one of the very best states to license a group home. Here is why. Virginia does not require a home to start the licensing process. Daily per diems for relatively high functioning individuals is approximately $270.00 per day. Also, Virginia DBHDS will allow you to house up to 4 individuals in a home and not require a sprinkler system as some other states does.

Virginia DBHDS residential programs include but are not limited to:

Supported Housing
Programs that provide housing in small homes, apartment buildings, condominiums or agency-owned complexes for adults with physical, developmental, intellectual, sensory or emotional disabilities. They may be staffed to provide functional skills training and on-site supportive services. Residents generally have basic self-help skills and may take responsibility for employing and supervising aides to assist them in meeting their personal needs.

Group Homes
Group Homes provide services to adults in a Department of Behavioral Health and Developmental Services (DBHDS) licensed home with staff available 24 hours per day to provide skill building and other direct supports as necessary to enable each person to reside successfully in the community.

Sponsored Residential Homes
A unique program licensed by Department of Behavioral Health and Developmental Services (DBHDS) which enables an individual with developmental disabilities the opportunity to be a part of a family and community.
