Welcome to Pleasant View

We help individuals with disabilities live with purpose.

Our Mission

Pleasant View supports individuals with disabilities in living out their goals for meaningful work, relationships, and spiritual development.

Our Vision

All people will have the opportunity to live in and enrich their communities.

Pleasant View was founded in 1971

By members of the Virginia Mennonite Conference

Over 50 years later, Pleasant View is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization which continues to help individuals with disabilities to live full lives through spiritual, residential and day support services in locations throughout the city of Harrisonburg, Rockingham County, and beyond.  We create opportunities for individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities to live in and enrich their communities. 

Pleasant View provides individuals with disabilities in our programs accessible transportation services using FTA 5310 grant vehicles. Please follow this link to view our ADA Policies and procedures.

We Promote Holistic Well-Being

Because life is for living, not simply existing

People with intellectual and developmental disabilities are valued members of the community. For many of those we support at Pleasant View, obstacles hinder their ability to live independently and participate fully in community life. We exist to remove those obstacles and integrate individuals into the community.

We Support Individuals With Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities

Through Personalized Support & Affordable Housing

Pleasant View offers secure and cost-effective housing solutions, personalized support services for individuals with medicaid and medicaid waiver funding, and a wide range of enriching activities that promote holistic well-being.

Our Mission In Action

This is our "why"

Pleasant View exists to empower people to explore, embrace, and find the passions and the joy of living. We foster opportunities, community, and relationships, helping each person grow as individuals and as a fully integrated community members.
