“The founders of Welcome House and West Haven, the Steudel Family, had envisioned that persons with DD could live in group homes or family style homes that replicated as close as possible the kind of living that they were used to growing up.”


Welcome House plays an important role in the lives of individuals with Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities (IDD). Welcome House exists to help people with IDD lead full and rewarding lives by providing a variety of residential services in an atmosphere of a caring community. Without Welcome House, over 200 adults would not have the opportunity to learn skills that most people take for granted.

Every dollar given to Welcome House ensures the highest quality of life for persons with IDD.
