About Us

Our mission is: providing choices and opportunities for children and adults with special needs to maximize the freedom and control they can bring to their lives. To learn, to grow, to reach for the stars...these are the goals and dreams of the people served by Lakemary - children and adults with intellectual/developmental differences.

Since 1969, Lakemary has been a leader in providing opportunities for individuals with special needs. Helping maximize the freedom and control they bring to their lives is what Lakemary is all about.

Each year, Lakemary touches the lives of more than 600 individuals and their families. Our children's psychiatric residential treatment program and school are located on a beautiful 32-acre campus in Paola. In addition, a wide range of individualized services for adults and children are provided at sites throughout Miami and Johnson counties.

From early intervention to retirement supports for older adults - Lakemary provides a lifetime of opportunities for those we serve.
