We would like to acknowledge friends of Villa de Vida who share the same vision of providing the best life opportunity to people with special needs. We are grateful for their support as we walk together on this amazing journey!
Casa de Amma

It is a prototype community that successfully addresses the needs of adults with special needs with a proven track record. Casa not only improves the quality of the developmentally disabled but that of the surrounding communities as well. Overall, Casa continues to be a model program that many wish to replicate in an effort to help meet the growing need of more supportive residential communities.
