We create opportunities for individuals with disabilities to design a life they choose, to build self-esteem and to have not only a place to sleep, but a place to call home.

Typical support plans include:

  • Responsible decision making
  • Budgeting and money management
  • Recreation and leisure
  • Health, wellness, sickness and emergency training
  • Personal care and hygiene
  • Meal planning and preparation
  • Communication
  • Coping skills and behavior


“My daughter was welcomed with open arms at Laura Baker. After moving 10 times in two years, she finally found a place that she could call home. Love, love, love the staff!”
