|Description of Agency||The Lamb Foundation, based in Montgomery County, Pa., provides homes for women and men struggling with physical, developmental, and/or mental disabilities. As members of the Lamb family, residents have the opportunity to learn, laugh, work, and enjoy leisure within the comfort of familial homes. Each Lamb Foundation home becomes a close-knit circle that grows and develops because of the unique personalities, abilities, and disabilities of each member.
Although Lamb Foundation residents have some degree of mental or physical disability, many once were talented professors, bookkeepers, authors, salespersons, devoted parents, spouses, or have been caregivers themselves. Our homes are not clinical, medical, therapeutic in nature, or institutional. Lamb Foundation does not use terms such as clients or patients. At the very least, the people living in Lamb Foundation homes are residents, and at the very best they are friends, family, and peers.
By providing unique daily life and growth opportunities in a small community, Lamb Foundation residents live complete family-oriented lives in homes and communities in the North Penn Valley. This small community includes opportunities such as dances, music lessons, Bible studies, field trips, camping, shopping, sports, and when possible, paid or volunteer jobs within the organization.
