We work to support the residents of Lakeland Village. That effort spans fund raising, support services, and legislative activities.
Our primary focus is to support the residents of Lakeland Village in a habilitation center that insures first-class care by providing skill development, meeting dietary/physical fitness needs, and providing medical/dental services. In addition, we seek to promote the welfare of all intellectually disabled people. We strongly support the rights of an intellectually disabled person to live where he or she chooses, be it a Residential Habilitation Center or in the community. A viable continuum of care is necessary to meet the needs of all people with intellectual disabilities.
A Bit of History.....

Originally established in 1914, the facility is now certified for 93 Nursing Facility beds and 190 Intermediate Care Facility beds for Individuals with Intellectual Disabilities. The facility's purpose is to provide appropriate, comprehensive, functional assessments, individualized plans of care, quality services that meet individual needs, honor human and legal rights, and promote independence and self-management in personalized home-like environments.
