We’re still growing! Brooke, who has been living at Laurel since July of last year, has now become a full-time member of our community. We welcome her with enthusiasm and look forward to her involvement in our village. Her parents Andi and Glenn visited in January to celebrate this milestone. We look forward to our connection with Brooke’s whole family. WELCOME BROOKE.











Annual Appeal 2011

Though mailed on November 1, 2011, many of our friends have told us they did not receive our Annual Appeal mailing and newsletter via the US Postal Service. You can take a look at our 2011 Annual Appeal Village Voice on line by clicking NEWSLETTER in the upper right hand corner of our home page…and you can also donate directly by clicking on the DONATE button, also in the upper right.

Thank you for all of you who came to our Open House and made this day a great success.

The Essential Volunteer

Full-time volunteer caregivers are the special ingredient that sets Innisfree apart from any institution, whether public or private. A two-to-one ratio of residents (also known as coworkers) to volunteer caregivers is maintained in order to foster a sense of community “with,” not “for” adults with intellectual disabilities.
