LEAP’s rich history began in 1980 when care for people with disabilities, and the public’s tolerance and understanding, were less advanced. Dissatisfied with institutional living for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities and/or autism at the time, a group of dedicated community members came together and worked to establish community living options with improved standards of care.
LEAP’s inception created options for community living for families in western Maine. After more than 40 years of growth and transformation, the philosophy and values upon which LEAP was founded are still present.
