Laura Baker School Association

We are a superior provider of housing, educational and support services for individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities.

Understanding that the needs of each individual are unique, we empower families to choose from a continuum of care that will support their loved ones in leading fulfilling lives. This year, we've placed special emphasis on raising money to support our Fund-A-Cause effort. Through this effort, we are serving our clients and families in three important ways: 

  • Pathways to the Future   

Serving as a voice for people with disabilities and engaging the community in advocating for policies that ensure access to adequate housing for individuals with disabilities, support for families and the ability for the industry to retain a highly engaged workforce and working to develop the next generation of solutions for people with disabilities to live the lives they choose.

  • Creative Arts
We're using art and music as nonthreatening creative tools so that clients can focus on developing physical, cognitive, emotional and social skills. Our creative arts programming serves as a catalyst to enrich the individual and community life of clients and staff by providing opportunities to make art and learn from each other through shared creative experiences.
  • Family Support Services
Our home at 211 Oak Street in Northfield is serving as a central meeting point for individuals who have a loved one with a disability to get support. We see the invisible world of families raising children with special needs and want to help by offering respite for parents and caregivers at monthly events and through parent meetings.
