Laura Baker Services Association provides a continuum of supported living services so that each individual is best supported in leading a fulfilling life. No matter the choice, we endeavor to create opportunities for individuals to design a life of their own choosing, to build self-esteem and well-being, to have not only a place to sleep, but a place to call home.
Typical support plan components 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
- Coping skills and behavior
Nurturing Atmosphere, Individualized Plans
Oak Street Services provides a home with services for people 16 years or older who, because of their developmental disabilities, are not able to live independently in the community.
Our residential Oak Street Services are set in an established neighborhood. Clients live in houses with individual bedrooms, bathrooms and common spaces typical of a family home: living room, kitchen, dining area, laundry room and an “extra room” for exercise, games, crafts or hobbies, sensory equipment and activities. Each of our five houses provides a home to six people with supervision. Clients live in a safe, nurturing atmosphere that emphasizes continuous learning and individualized growth.
We believe that all people need to live their own, best lives. In order to do this, we work with each person to develop a tailored support plan based on his or her wants, needs and dreams.

Tools, Choice and Growth
Our community-based living option provides residential services in multiple homes in Northfield. Each of the homes has 24-hour staffing, providing people with developmental disabilities the support, training and assistance they need to live as independently as possible.
Knowledgeable staff members help clients grow and develop at their own rate in a safe, nurturing and challenging environment. The focus is on continued improvement accomplished through personal learning programs, with the goal of teaching clients the tools they need to interact with and live capably in the larger community.
Through our personal learning programs we work with each client to create a tailored support plan based on his or her wants, needs and dreams. Our philosophy is that each client should have as much control and choice as possible, and we support people in their decision making and encourage new growth opportunities.
