About Us

At Heinzerling Community, we are committed to caring for children and adults with severe or profound developmental disabilities. Our compassionate and dedicated staff focuses on creating a nurturing environment in which individuals have opportunities to learn, have fun, feel safe and loved, and make choices about what happens in their lives. We strive for individuals to live as independently as possible while receiving the physical, emotional and medical supports they need to live a life full of opportunities for growth and development.

The mission of Heinzerling Community is to provide a loving and nurturing environment that enriches the development, education, and quality of life of individuals with severe or profound developmental disabilities.

Our Leadership

Heinzerling Community is governed by a board of trustees, advised by a health advisory committee and led by a team of dedicated professionals who oversee general administration, finances, operations and resident services.

History & Background
