    President & Executive Director

    Company: HopeTree Family Services

    Date posted: May 20, 2019


    The Mission of HopeTree Family Services is to provide Christian residential, educational, and support services to at-risk children and youth, and to adults with intellectual disabilities throughout Virginia.

    The Opportunity | HopeTree Family Services

    HopeTree Family Services provides Christian residential, educational and support services to at-risk children and youth, and to adults with intellectual disabilities, throughout Virginia. Its roots trace to the Baptist Orphanage of Virginia, formed in 1887, to help Virginia’s children in need. Like the Orphanage, HopeTree is in Salem, Virginia and is the DBA name for Virginia Baptist Children’s Home and Family Services. The name HopeTree was adopted to reflect the entirety of our programs—including DDM homes, foster families, alternative education schools, and others—and to convey our open doors to all denominations and our statewide locations.

    The word “hope” conveys the single greatest benefit offered to all who come here for care.   A tree has long been a part of our organization’s imagery as a symbol of strength, shelter, endurance and vibrant life, as well as the sheltering comfort provided there. Thus, our name HopeTree symbolizes the mission that has remained the same throughout our history: to provide quality Christian care to people in need.

    The Surrounding Community | Salem, VA 

    Nestled in Virginia’s Blue Ridge Mountains, Salem is rich with history. While Salem has grown to city status, its charm, values, and traditions have not been lost. The city of Salem has become known around the country as a premier destination for tournaments and sporting events. Salem has hosted over 70 NCAA Championships since 1993 and many great athletes have competed on the fields of this city during parts of their careers. Salem is also known as a city with great music, food, shopping and fantastic special events throughout the year, including the Salem Fair, Blue Ridge Music Festival and Olde Salem Days. The home of Roanoke College, Salem is bordered by Roanoke VA, and is a 30-minute drive from Blacksburg, VA, home of Virginia Tech.
