Last September, Paladin- a non-profit organization dedicated to advocating and serving persons with intellectual and developmental disabilities for the past 50 years- has expanded its Day Program into Lake County, IN. The organization now has centers in La Porte, Michigan City, Hobart, Highland, and Crown Point.
After eight months of offering Day Programming, Paladin identified a need and opportunity for Residential Services. Kelsey Gant, Residential Director, stated that residential services are designed to provide individuals with disabilities the opportunity and supports to live independently while immersing them into their community. She continued to state that the program is goal-oriented and client-driven, meaning that staff will support their clients in any way possible to ensure that they live a meaningful life—a life filled with possibilities, adventure, and discovery.
Paladin is currently accepting referrals. For more information, please call Kelsey Gant at 219-324-0656.
