- 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.

My son has been a resident and a student at Lake Mary for over a year now. We have been very happy with the services he receives. We know he is happy and safe.
