St. Louis Center was founded in 1960 and is a residential community for individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities. The Center is located on a 180-acre campus five miles west of Chelsea, MI. St. Louis Center is the permanent home for 70 men and women who have conditions, including Down syndrome, fetal alcohol syndrome and autism. Here, each resident finds a caring, supportive environment that allows each resident to live the fullest possible life.
At the Center, we believe that every individual, regardless of level of ability, is gifted with intelligence and will and, therefore, needs to give and receive attention, esteem and love and to be an active member of a family and a community. The residents of St. Louis Center enjoy participating in on- and off-campus fitness and wellness activities, sporting and community events, social gatherings, art and music activities, volunteerism, and spending time at home with their families. Community involvement programs facilitated by St. Louis Center include gainful employment and volunteering at local social service agencies and at community events such as the Chelsea Fair and Chelsea High School football games, among many others.
