Who are we?

Innisfree Village is a fully licensed, residential community with adults with intellectual disabilities. Founded in 1971, this nonprofit, nonsectarian community is located on 550 acres in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains outside the university town of Charlottesville, Virginia. We are dedicated to a lifesharing community model.

Lifesharing Mission

Lifesharing at Innisfree means that residents and their volunteer caregivers live as families in the community’s 15 houses. In this close-knit environment, people develop profound relationships based on mutual needs, respect, and love.
