Established in 2004, Bishop Grady Villas, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, was the dream of Sr. Elizabeth Marie Stoup, SSJ. Sister envisioned a residential community where adults with intellectual disabilities could live as independently as possible while receiving supports to be safe and healthy. Our services quickly grew to include pre-vocational, employment, respite and companion services for individuals who reside throughout Orange, Osceola, Polk, and Seminole Counties.
Bishop Grady Villas supports persons with disabilities to use their God-given gifts to achieve greater independence, physical and emotional well-being, and spiritual growth. We empower these individuals from throughout Central Florida to reach their full potential through Christ-centered, personalized and wholistic residential, vocational and employment services, and community support.
Bishop Grady Villas Prayer:
Lord Jesus, as you walked on our earth
You were divine in your compassion and mercy.
Your hands were healing hands.
You made the lame whole and fed the hungry.
You brought comfort and peace to those with disabilities.
Dear Lord, we ask You to bless all who live in these homes
And to bless all those who work and support this place.
May these Villas be under the special care of the Blessed Virgin Mary
and her Spouse and the guardian angels. Amen.
