Our Mission

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


Rehabilitation Center: The Mary Lee Foundation Rehabilitation Center (MLFRC) provides individual and group therapeutic services for outpatient clients. The MLFRC aims to focus on the skills necessary to regain independence through client-centered, community re-integration therapies and activities. For more information click here.

Intellectual Disabilities:  The Mary Lee Foundation’s Southpointe programs offer something at every level of care for adults with intellectual or developmental disabilities. The purpose behind all Mary Lee Foundation programs including Southpointe is to maximize each client’s independence while providing them with the care and support they need. Because everyone is different, we offer a variety of program options to meet your or your loved one’s individual needs. For more information click here.

Affordable Housing: The Mary Lee Foundation helps to provide affordable housing to the working poor, single parents with young children and those on Social Security Disability. While all of the apartments are open to any resident of the community, Mary Lee welcomes individuals with mental or physical disabilities. For more information click here.
