Believe, Belong, Become...

Believe in yourself,  Belong to a community,

Become whatever your heart desires.


The Sheperd’s Lodge (TSL) is bridging the gap in services and supports for persons living with an Intellectual and Developmental Disability (IDDs), 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 individuals with developmental and/or intellectual disabilities that promote independent living skills. 


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

Meeting them where they are for whom they are.  Offering 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.
