Founded in 1946, Holy Childhood prepares children and adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities for maximum independence and integration in the community. In the School Program,120 students from 49 school districts participate in individualized, innovative programs and services where they achieve goals and personal victories every day.

Our Adult Program serves more than 100 adults, providing training and employment opportunities in our fulfillment division, Partners with Industry and our Woodworking programs.  Our Skills/Transition/Day Habilitation programs help to prepare adults to become as independent as they can be.  Holy Childhood's Supported Employment Service helps people with intellectual and developmental disabilities find jobs in the community, earning at least minimum wage.  Holy Childhood is dedicated to serving our people in an atmosphere of dignity and compassion.
