Organization Information

Mission Statement

Our mission is to be an organization of excellence that provides superior services to children and adults with developmental disabilities and other special needs to help them realize their full potential and maximize self-sufficiency.


Laradon specializes in services to children and adults with developmental disabilities. We operate 11 programs which are designed to help each individual develop to his or her fullest potential.

Laradon is more than an organization, we are a support network made up of people who care - and are committed to helping people with developmental disabilities maximize their independence in a dynamic world.

Laradon is guided by the vision of its founders, Joseph and Elizabeth Calabrese, that people with disabilities and special needs should have the same rights, privileges and opportunities as people without disabilities. The Calabreses knew that when provided with the proper education, training and supports, people with disabilities could realize their full potential, contribute to the community in their own unique ways and become valued members of society.

That vision still exists. It is manifested in Laradon’s culture and operating philosophy and it is embodied in its mission statement.
