Lakemary Center

Tel: (913)557-4000
  • 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.
