Who We Are

We are a non-profit family of person-centered, community homes and services supporting 230 individuals with intellectual disabilities, many of whom have multiple physical challenges. Verland's main campus has ten larger, family-centered homes, which complement community placement with a complete continuum of options for those needing more support, and includes cutting-edge facilities that provide medical, dental, educational, recreational and therapeutic services. Our professionally trained staff are dedicated to the complex needs of our individuals, and provide a full continuum of treatment and services for a lifetime where the individuals are primary in an elegant, dignified, state-of-the-heart lifestyle.

Our Mission

Establish, support, operate and sustain the best possible programs for the holistic well-being of the individuals whom we serve, without prejudice.
