Welcome to St. Louis Center
The St. Louis Center is a caring residential family, living and learning environment providing for the physical, emotional, and spiritual needs of children and adults with developmental disabilities.
St. Louis Center is a non-profit residential care facility for developmentally disabled boys, and adult men and women. Our children's program accepts boys between the ages of six to eighteen, and our adult program is for those men and women who are eighteen years of age and older. Our programs are licensed by the State of Michigan, and we are accredited by CARF, (Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities), an organization that grants accreditation services nationally and internationally. St. Louis Center is located in Chelsea, Michigan, sixty miles west of Detroit in Washtenaw County, between the cities of Ann Arbor and Jackson off I-94 in southeastern Michigan.
St. Louis Center has been run by the Servants of Charity Congregation of Catholic priests since 1960, whose primary mission is to care for those who are poor and abandoned by society.
Based on the principles expounded by their founder Blessed Louis Guanella, St. Louis Center provides a home in a pastoral setting for those that are in foster care and for those who are privately placed. The creation of a family atmosphere is critical to our success, and the promotion of the whole person, according to each one's capabilities, is the main objective of our work.
