OUR PROMISE  Making everyday life possible for individuals with profound disabilities

OUR VISION A happy, safe, purpose-filled life for every individual with intellectual and developmental disabilities

The safety of the Marklund community during this time is our primary concern. In an effort to prevent/slow the spread of COVID-19, we are requesting your attention to and compliance with Marklund’s policies and recommendations — not only to ensure your own well-being but the well-being of those we serve and all who work at all of our sites.

Marklund is a nonprofit organization that serves infants, children, teens and adults with serious and profound developmental disabilities and special healthcare needs.
At Marklund, everything we do begins with caring for each and every child or adult with the same care we would want for our own family members. Many of our residents and community clients are non-ambulatory and have severe cognitive deficits due to genetic disorders or complications during pregnancy and delivery. Others acquired disabilities during infancy or childhood through tragic accidents. Many have complex medical problems that require 24-hour skilled nursing care.

Being an advocate for Marklund just got easier…
