  • Benedictine
     - Residential & day services for children & adults

    Headquartered in Ridgely, Maryland and serving Caroline, Talbot, Queen Anne's and Kent Counties, Benedictine was founded in 1959 by the sisters of St. Benedict as a residential and day school for children with developmental and intellectual disabilities. Benedictine's Open Community Program, established in 1982, provides regional residential and vocational services for adults in Maryland and Delaware. Founded on the belief that people with disabilities should have the opportunity to live meaningful, productive lives, in communities of choice, Benedictine helps children and adults with disabilities reach their greatest potential without regard to race, color, national origin, or age. Benedictine's values are dignity of work, hospitality and compassionate care.
