Day Support Services
Pleasant View was founded in 1971
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.

Meeting Individuals at their Point of Need
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 an individual and as a fully integrated community members.
What to Expect from Day Support Services
Individuals who have intellectual and developmental disabilities are important members of our community. We provide opportunities for individuals to work toward their own goals, enrich their community, and feel a sense of belonging.
Group Day Support Service is provided Monday through Friday in our Harrisonburg Day Program. Activities focused on weekly themes are planned with varied site-based fun and community outings.
Community Engagement Service provides community-based opportunities to individuals who have disabilities to build naturally supportive relationships with people who live, work, and/or volunteer in their local areas.
Through a ratio of one staff member to three individuals (1:3), we provide each person a chance to access and participate in typical day-to-day activities the general population encounters on a regular basis (started 2018).
Supported Employment Service operates with the principle that all individuals who have disabilities have the ability and desire to work competitively when given the right support structure.
Using the Individual Support model, a job coach provides one-to-one support to a worker in an employment position until support can be decreased gradually as the worker becomes more proficient (started in 1998).
