Corvilla was originally founded in 1959 by a group of parents in need of respite care for their children with disabilities. With the help of The Brother of Holy Cross, one respite home grew into four group homes. Since then, Corvilla has grown to include a day program, employment services and supported living services.
We believe that all people, regardless of their abilities, can embrace who they are and define their own future.
Corvilla provides life-enhancing services to enrich the lives of individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities while encouraging respect and dignity in the communities in which we live.
Through the provision of life-enhancing services, progressive policies, and strategic decision making, Corvilla will be the provider and employer of choice in the region.
