Mental Retardation/Developmental Delay Services

It was an obvious need that led to a courageous decision in the early 1950s, when St. Joseph’s opened its residence to serve children who were diagnosed with mental retardation. Over the next several decades the program grew in both scope and reputation.

Deeply rooted in the Catholic tradition that all life is sacred, these services celebrate the beauty and individuality of each person served, while challenging his or her potential. Today, a recognized leader in the care of people with special needs, St. Joseph’s offers outpatient therapy, in-home and community-based assistance, adult day programs, and expanded residential services for both children and adults.
