Cedar Lake Foundation, Inc.

Unconditional love for people with disabilities

aka Cedar Lake   |   Louisville, KY   |  www.cedarlake.org

Mission

Our mission is to offer highly compassionate, capable care for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities so they may experience a life of abundant possibilities. Cedar Lake was founded in 1970 by Louisville-area parents of people with intellectual disabilities. Cedar Lake Lodge began providing intensive supports in 1974, and added “community-based” support options, Cedar Lake Residences, in 1989. Cedar Lake is a faith-based organization, and is formally affiliated with the Lutheran Church. Our vision is of a community where those with and without disabilities learn to share and enrich each other’s lives through meaningful interactions that cultivate mutual respect and unconditional love.

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

The Cedar Lake story began in 1970 with a clear vision of providing exceptional supports for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities in a caring, loving and family-like environment. While the original vision seems simple and straightforward, 50-years later, we continue to take great care to attract and hire people with a servant’s heart and deep compassion to accomplish this vision. The wonderful people we support, and the families who have come to rely upon us, have rightly come to expect the very best – and that indeed is our continued commitment to them, and to our founding families who dared to dream of such a Godly place.
