About Us

Welcome to Sunny Haven Residential Services, where we prioritize the well-being and development of adults in need of support. With a steadfast commitment to excellence, our team provides a broad spectrum of residential and community engagement programs designed for individuals aged 18 and older.

Our roots trace back to historic Staunton, Virginia, and we have since expanded to include a network of group homes and sponsored residential homes across various locations. Each home is tailored to offer a comfortable, supportive, and engaging environment that promotes personal growth and independence.

At Sunny Haven, our licensed and experienced staff deliver personalized care, including medication management and skill-building activities. We believe in fostering a community where residents can pursue their interests and enjoy a fulfilling life.

Our 24-hour emergency coverage ensures that residents are safe and well-cared for at all times. We are dedicated to providing a nurturing environment that feels like home, where every individual is treated with dignity and respect.
