Our History

Mr. Bill Williams, founder of Hope Village  Mrs. Lucille Williams, founder of Hope Village
Bill and Lucille Williams

Hope Village was founded by Bill and Lucille Williams in 1967 when they sought care for their daughter, Sally, who had been diagnosed as an infant with mental retardation. Dissatisfied with the few services available at that time, Mrs. Williams became the driving force behind the planning and building of Hope Village. She sought to create a place that would be a loving home for her daughter and others with similar disabilities. The first home was opened in 1970 with six residents.

Mr. and Mrs. Williams are no longer with us but for those whose lives have been touched by them through Hope Village, we are eternally grateful for their determination and commitment to make a better life with more opportunities for people with intellectual disabilities.
