We are a private, non-profit institution founded in 1961 by a group of dedicated parents and physicians who were interested in providing access to special education and support services for underprivileged children and young people with intellectual disabilities, to enhance their skills and abilities and help them reach their full potential.
Our main goal is to help each individual reach their full potential by means of our educational and therapeutic programs. We promote the development of their psycho-affective, intellectual, and motor abilities. Our services are aimed at individuals with intellectual disabilities from as young as 6 months of age, through young adulthood. With the ongoing support of their parents, we are able to provide students with early intervention, school age academic education, vocational training, and job placement programs.
We are funded through grants, private donations, and public fundraising events which are organized throughout the year. We now invite you to get involved and to participate with us!
Our organization is guided by a Board of Directors that is composed by a group of philanthropic professionals who are committed to our cause. They donate their time and services at no cost to the Institution, contributing their experience and knowledge to strengthen and develop our programs.
We operate within three major areas
