• Our Mission...

    "To serve adults with special needs so that they may develop a sense of dignity, a feeling of self-worth, and the skills necessary to socially integrate with and contribute to the community in which they live."

  • Dedication...

    "With the help of Mary Lee, and the awesome people who work there, our daughter is living on her own and even has a job working there as well. I would recommend Mary Lee to any one who wants to have a better life for themselves. The people there are great . . . they have heart."

  • Success...

    "Dear Charlene,
    I appreciate all that the Mary Lee Foundation has done to help my son grow and become more independent. This is a wonderful program and I thank each and every one of you for the great jobs you do for my son and all the other clients you help."
