Loveland Center Inc. My Son had been at home for several years because the last school he went too just let him sit all day and it made him not want to go. He would stay awake at night because he didn't want to go. Our life was not good making him go so we kept him at home.

I had heard from people what a great school Loveland Center was. We talked to Social Worker and she carried us down for a visit. I was very impressed with the program and the happiness i saw on the clients face.

We enrolled him and he started him over two years ago and I can't get him to stay home. He is kept busy and has a reason to get up in the morning.

My son has very little speech. They must communicate to him well because he can let me know the things that go on during the day.

A wonderful caring group of Staff and Volunteers who i appreciate very much.

I'm happy here because I like it here. I play bingo. do crafts, go for walks and go to Aktion Club. In Aktion Club we ring bells at Christmas to make money for others. The staff helps me learn how to do things, like puzzles. I have friends at Loveland.

This is an incredible organization that empowers adults (students) with developmental disabilities to define and achieve their own life goals. The results have been spectacular. More than 40,000 hours of student volunteer efforts have been given back to our community. Students choose to develop and or improve their skills at work, in their own homes or as a volunteer with other organizations. The staff is second to none in their dedication to the students.
