Lakemary Center, like most great accomplishments, was the product of the determined efforts of a few good people.
In 1969, the Ursuline Sisters of Paola, came together with parents, community members and friends to create a safe, nurturing environment for children with developmental disabilities.
Today Lakemary is a well established agency with a national reputation for quality whose services touch the lives of over 500 individuals with developmental disabilities each year.
Ninety students currently receive primary and secondary education at Lakemary’s school, with 64 of the children residing on campus year-round.
An additional 200 children receive services through the infant toddler and supported family living programs, and through service coordination.
Our adult program serves 120 individuals in residential settings throughout Johnson and Miami counties and 140 in vocational programming.
From the beginning, individuals and families of those we serve can be assured a quality experience.
All individuals are provided health maintenance supported by a professional nursing staff, in order to coordinate their medical needs.
This wellness concept is critical to developing a self-sufficient attitude and is emphasized through nutrition and exercise programs as well as many opportunities for recreational, leisure and spiritual activities.
Lakemary’s commitment to those we serve is strong and enduring.
It is our goal to remain a constant partner as individual needs evolve over time and to help all of those we serve achieve the lifestyle they desire.
