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

Being an advocate for Marklund just got easier…
