Believe, Belong, Become...

Believe in yourself,  Belong to a community,

Become whatever is meaningful.


The Sheperd’s Lodge (TSL) bridges the gap in services and supports for persons living with an Intellectual and Developmental Disability (IDDs) / Autism, as they age out and exit the school system and are transitioning into adulthood and the workforce. To create and maintain Customizable, Affordable, Sustainable, and Safe living arrangements for the individuals we serve that promote independent living skills. 


Some individuals may either be at risk of homelessness or are transitioning out of a long-term adult care facility into their own semi or independent living arrangements. We are actively networking and meeting with community partners, families and individuals that are interested in learning more about what options are available to them at TSL.

Meeting our members where they are for whom they are.  Offering a self-sustainable therapeutic recreational and psycho-social rehabilitation center on a working homestead and agritourism farm. 

All our members, living and working side by side, create a dynamic and caring community of people.
