Our Mission

Glenkirk provides quality, lifetime supports and services that empower individuals with intellectual disabilities to participate fully in all areas of community life.  Glenkirk offers a variety of residential, day and employment programs, as well as respite, medical, behavioral and home-based services.

Focused on Abilities, Not Disabilities
Glenkirk was started by dedicated people who wanted something better for children and adults with disabilities. From that desire grew a commitment to excellence which has continued more than half a century and, with your help, will continue well into the future. Since 1954, Glenkirk has provided the highest quality programs and services to individuals with intellectual disabilities.

Throughout its history, Glenkirk has always focused on the unique strengths, needs and desires of each person it serves. Taking the time to get to know each individual on a personal level and providing that person with the skills and inspiration to meet his or her own unique potential is our top priority and our greatest reward.
