Our Values

We aren’t afraid to shake things up. When we see an opportunity to create real change, we take it. But no matter what, we stay true to our values. Our values motivate us to inspire positive action, and while we welcome innovation, we pride ourselves on holding to our core motivations.

  • We believe in serving with integrity, honesty, and humility.
  • We believe in utilizing a relationship-oriented approach to begin the change process. 
  • We believe in treating everyone with dignity and respect.
  • We believe in including natural supports in the treatment process. If someone matters to the communities we serve, they matter to us.
  • We believe that each youth and their family are much more than names and histories on paper.
  • We believe in investing in, training, and supporting our staff and foster parents.
  • We believe in the power of creativity and develop plans that best serve our youth regardless of how unconventional the approach may seem.
  • We believe that the positive outcomes for children in foster care are attainable with the right approach and a healthy dose of compassion.
  • We believe in creating a culture of cooperation and collaboration with employees and community partners.

Our History


Impact Living Services (ILS) was created by a team of professionals who had the audacious goal of changing outcomes in foster care and families. The status quo was simply unacceptable — so our founder set out to forge an independent living program like no other, headquartering in Lynchburg, Virginia.



As we continued to empower our clients, we saw a need to expand our services. So that’s exactly what we did. We added treatment-based foster care placements, plus resources for families interested in fostering. We incorporated mentorship programs. We did what we had to do for the good of our clients. And all the while, we grew outside of just Lynchburg, spreading throughout Virginia.

2024 and Beyond

As we look to the future, Impact Living Services will continue to focus on making earthquakes that change the lives of vulnerable community members. We will continue to remain adaptable, but steady, with compassion at the forefront of everything we do.
