Our Services to Clients and the Community

The James L. Maher Center provides a broad range of client services developed over the years as a natural outgrowth of our fundamental mission to provide support and opportunities to individuals with developmental disabilities.

Our focus is always concern for and respect for our clients as individuals. Our programs are designed to help each client to become more independent and productive and to integrate more fully into their local communities.

To ensure that each client progresses in the areas in which their needs dictate, we customize our residential, vocational/educational and therapeutic services to support the specific needs of that individual, always with appropriately trained staff and ongoing monitoring.

The Maher Center reaches out to those with developmental disabilities, no matter what their age or the challenges they face. We assist infants and their families through our early intervention program, as well as adults throughout their lives, including those experiencing the added complications of aging, such as Alzheimer's disease.

Our employment program was among the first in Rhode Island to offer meaningful employment to people with developmental disabilities. This program has grown and expanded over the years and as a result, many clients become productive citizens and taxpayers, rather than being a tax burden.
