The Angelus group home facilities are located in Hudson, Florida on 17 beautiful wooded acres. Not an institution, The Angelus is a group of homes that are all located on the same rural, nature rich grounds, designed to allow individuals with physical challenges the opportunity to safely visit their neighbors and friends.
With approximately 3 miles of sidewalks and paved roads on the grounds, individuals in wheelchairs can safely get around among the five group homes and to visit other buildings and their friends on the grounds to participate in events.
The grounds also include the main office building, a solar and propane heated indoor pool, Lake Little John, a community garden and a Pavilion on the property used for various events such as concerts, the annual Haunted House, picnics, family gatherings, weddings and more.
