    About Us

    Benedictine helps children and adults with developmental and intellectual disabilities and autism achieve their greatest potential.

    With the main campus located on Maryland’s Eastern Shore, Benedictine has been serving children and adults with developmental and intellectual disabilities and autism from Maryland and the Mid-Atlantic for over 60 years. Benedictine is one of the most comprehensive integrated non-sectarian nonprofit service providers for children and adults ages 5 to 70+. The year-round educational program is one of only 26 nationwide to earn a two-year accreditation from the National Commission for Accreditation of Special Education Services (NCASES). This program includes home-like living and learning options on the Ridgely, Maryland campus, for children ages 5 to 21. Benedictine’s Adult Services program offers employment and vocational services for transitional youth and adults, ages 22 to 70+, in the community and for those who live in Benedictine’s 22 group homes in Caroline, Talbot, and Anne Arundel Counties. Benedictine’s Easton Community Services & Training Center in Talbot County prepares the adults it serves to enter the workforce and collaborates with the local County Public Schools to provide services to their special education students through the Department of Rehabilitation Services (DORS) Program.
