Why does Lafayette Habilitation Center need your support?

We provide 24-hour residential care for individuals with a wide variety of needs. We strive to provide the most homelike, positive, and active environment we can for the individuals we so passionately care about. While we receive ongoing funding from Medicaid and the Social Security Administration, these funds do not cover many of the expenses required for specialized equipment, costly community events, or even special holiday events for the individuals we serve.


By getting involved, you or your organization can help:
  • Provide individuals with holiday gifts
  • Provide admission tickets or spending money for community events such as baseball games, movie theaters, hockey games, concerts, and others.
  • Provide individuals with special birthday celebrations.
  • And much, much more!

How can you or your organization help support Lafayette Habiliation Center?

Sponsor an Event

Holiday parties to open house celebrations; birthday parties to staff appreciation events; there is something out there for everyone. You or members of your business or organization may enjoy dedicating efforts toward purchasing decorations, foods, prizes, etc. The options are endless!

Support an Individual

Many of the individuals we care for do not have family to support them. Without family, they rarely have a visitor and if it wasn’t for the caring employees of Lafayette Habilitation Center, they would never see a birthday cake or Christmas present. Please consider supporting these individuals so they too will experience the joys of family. You can truly make an impact in their lives.

Fundraising Event

Holding a fundraising event is a great way to get involved! Not only do you get to experience the fun of holding the event, you also get to reap the rewards of sharing the proceeds with those in need.

Long Term Planning

A great time to think about how you can help others is when you are developing your own long-term estate and financial plans. Doing so gives you the opportunity to bequeath gifts of cash, securities, real estate, or the assignment of beneficiary to Lafayette Habilitation Center.

In Honor of/In Memory of…

Helping others in honor of or in memory of a loved one is an excellent way to recognize someone’s life, a birthday, an anniversary, or another special event.


When out shopping, you could pick up some additional hygiene supplies to donate. Or when the weather turns cool, throw a few extra hats, scarves, and sets of gloves in your basket. See some nice room decorations on sale? The individuals we serve would love to have a bedroom that feels like their own.
