St. Mary’s Home in Norfolk is a special place full of love and laughter, where children and young adults from all across Virginia live, play, go to school and receive complex, professional, around-the-clock care in a nurturing, comfortable environment to help them achieve their fullest potential.

Staff provides medical, therapeutic, educational and recreational services for 88 children ages newborn to 21 years. With the opening of The Albero House in 2013, St. Mary’s Home also cares for 12 adults older than age 21.

The Albero House for Adults

Moving away from the comfortable environment and caring, expert staff they have known can be difficult for the young adults of St. Mary’s Home when they turn 21, and for their families. It also can be difficult to find a comparable place for adults to receive the specialized care that St. Mary’s provides.

In 2013, St. Mary’s expanded to provide our graduates with another option. The Albero House, a 10,000-square-foot wing, features 12 private bedrooms decorated to reflect personal tastes, a spacious common living area, a kitchen, an enclosed porch and a beautifully landscaped courtyard. Large windows flood the rooms and hallways with natural light.

Residential program serving youth ages 0-21.
