Message from The St. John's Villa Board of Trustees

Although St. John’s Villa originally was founded as an orphanage in Carrollton, Ohio in 1948; by the mid-sixties the Villa was licensed by the Ohio Department of Developmental Disabilities to serve persons who are mentally challenged. As in similar organizations of the era, the need for these services became obvious as this population lacked the educational and support services needed to provide a quality of life. In 1991, incorporation became imperative with a Lay Board of Trustees placed in charge under the general leadership of the diocese of Steubenville, to provide guidance, reassurance, and direction where needed.

Through our ministry the Villa provides Christian loving care and guidance to 55 adult residents, plus 10 persons from the community, diagnosed with developmental disabilities. The mission of the 100 part and full time employees is:

St. John's Villa is committed
to living out
the healing ministry
of Jesus by providing
exceptional and compassionate service
that promotes dignity and well-being
for the people we service,
particularly those who are
developmentally disabled.

The Villa provides beautiful home settings for up to 55 residents and additionally, day services approved by the Ohio Department of Developmental Disabilities of Skills Development and Supports for persons with developmental disabilities through work programs engendering a sense of dignity through productive work and salaries that boost a sense of dignity. Most of the Villa residents are involved in these programs, but some choose to participate in the local County Board of DD day services at Carroll Hills Workshop.

Each of the residents is involved annually in the planning of his/her goals. As such some of the residents choose to become involved in community employment. Conscientious and caring staff assists each to reach their goals.

In addition to the services provided to the developmentally disabled residents of St. John’s Villa, the Villa has a lot to offer the people of Carroll County and the surrounding areas:

Supported Living and Individual Options Services to challenged persons living in surrounding counties.

These programs ensure contacts with the community while providing an entire community of people for the family of St. John's Villa.

With the new facilities (homes) completed in the Fall of 2001, and the Harry and Jeannette Weinberg Administration Building in 2002 on property behind Wendy's on Crest Street, the whole organization took on a new face!

With the completion of phase one of the campaign, strenuous fund raising efforts began to raise the $2.6 million for the construction of the 33,500 sq. ft. Harry and Jeanette Weinberg Multi-Purpose Center to house the programs and administration offices of the Villa.

God has blessed us with many, many heart-felt gifts from family members, friends and several foundations from here and abroad, and I am happy to say we have reached our goal for phase two. Relocation of the restaurant, woodshop, vocational sites, adult day services, and the administration offices was completed and moved into by November 15, 2002!

Through the care provided to our residents St. John's Villa can reach out to persons with disabilities not only meeting their needs, but supporting their families as well. Each person served at St. John’s has been created by God to bring His love and caring to one another and to society. Our commitment at the Villa is to make each day of their lives the best for them and their families and friends.

The programs being carried out will provide at least 95 percent of the ongoing costs of administering St. John’s Villa. The remainder will need to continue to be subsidized through ongoing fundraising.
