Helping People

with developmental disabilites live like you and me

At Emmaus, we know that the people we support want to be independent.
In order to do that, they need a community that embraces their unique abilities. 

For over 125 years, as a faith-based organization, we have provided quality services, caring for the whole person for their whole life.

 The problem is that services for people with disabilities are underfunded and understaffed.

We believe everyone deserves the resources to live independently.
