This place of hope is
…a locally, nationally and internationally acclaimed organization dedicated to transforming and enhancing the lives of people with complex special needs.
From a residential school for children and community based homes for adults, to supported, independent and shared living opportunities, Latham Centers offers comprehensive and integrated care and a path forward for the most vulnerable individuals.
A beautiful and intimate campus in the town of Brewster on Cape Cod is home and school for children with complex special needs, including Prader-Willi Syndrome.
Founded in 1970, Latham Centers provides life-transforming educational, vocational and residential treatment programs for children and adults with complex special needs, including Prader-Willi Syndrome (PWS). The agency is a national leader in the residential treatment for PWS—a genetic disorder with no known cure.
OUR MISSION: Latham Center compassionately and creatively helps children and adults with complex special needs, including Prader-Willi Syndrome, to lead meaningful, abundant lives.
OUR CORE VALUES: We believe in the power of relationships. We listen. We courageously do what’s right. We strive for innovation and excellence.
innovation & excellence
Here students find a safe and healing environment, a vibrant atmosphere and dedicated professional staff. Latham focuses on highly individualized treatment that supports students and their families.
Latham provides the opportunity and possibilities we promised our daughter we would find for her—a safe school environment, a sense of belonging, and access to a caring community. It is hard to have her literally at the other end of the country; however, we have no regrets for the journey our family has charted because we have found the best PWS care for our daughter.”
