BENEFITING: Latham Centers Inc.
Latham Centers is one of a kind. There is no other place based on Cape Cod equipped to treat our individuals’ complex array of special needs. A typical Latham resident has three to five concurrent diagnoses, ranging from Prader-Willi Syndrome, Pervasive Developmental Disorder including Autism and Asperger Syndrome, Posttraumatic Stress Disorder, Development Delays, Bipolar Disorder, and other Mental Illness, and Reactive Attachment Disorder (most common in infants adopted from orphanages). One of these diagnoses alone would be daunting enough for any individual or family to face. Imagine three to five.
While some Latham children transition to Latham Centers’ Adult Services, others return home to family or enroll in other residential programs closer to home. Some residents no longer have family to support them. We become their family – their home – their world, using highly individualized treatment plans with expert but compassionate staff and a caring community.
With locations throughout Cape Cod and Southeastern Massachusetts, your gift will ensure that Latham Centers continues its innovative programs, such as:
Pet Care Programs that help individuals who have suffered trauma build trust and gain a sense of satisfaction from caring for others.
Adaptive sports, including the Special Olympics, that enhance the lives of students and adult residents;
Job training and vocational opportunities that build new skills and ties to the community;
Technology in Latham School classrooms that aid in student success in ways previously unattainable;
Enrichment programs that connect our individuals to other organizations and businesses while contributing to the local economy;
Won’t you please make an end-of-year gift today so every individual at Latham Centers continues to receive the best possible care and attain the brightest future and most productive life in the community? We all deserve that chance—to give thanks, give back, and care.
