It is a well established fact that being a part of the community and living as independently as possible are among the most important values and goals shares by people with disabilities, their families and advocates. When a person with a disability has a safe and comfortable home, it gives them the opportunity to thrive within their community and realize important life goals including education, job training, employment and socialization. It is Our Lady of the Wayside’s honor to give children and adults with disabilities a place where they are supported in a way that enables them to have every chance to become the person they are meant to be.
