Our Story
ABOUT US

We opened Tadd’s Lighthouse in 2007 because we saw a need for an alternative to traditional institutionalized care options—one that embraces and celebrates the unique nature of each person.

Tadd’s Lighthouse is a family owned and run organization that combines the love and support of family with highly trained and dedicated staff. Our model is focused on holistic care, adapting the surroundings to provide the highest quality of life for each person, and creating an environment that maximizes personal success.

At Tadd’s Lighthouse, you’ll not only receive expert care and services—you’ll get the love and support of a family. Because when you’re with us, you are family.

Our Mission

We respect and celebrate the diversity and uniqueness of each person, and our employees embrace and contribute to our mission:

“Always shining as a beacon of hope, serving as a port of safety and respect, and standing as a consistent, sturdy base of advocacy.”

OUR NAME
Tadd’s Lighthouse was chosen very carefully for what it represents—both to us and to those we serve. The lighthouse is a guiding light, keeping ships safe and on course—much as we guide individuals in a safe, compassionate manner that allows them to find their own course.

The lighthouse’s location and design empower it to stand firm in the storm, with a light shining strong regardless of weather—much as we remain sturdy advocates and positive forces for our individuals, regardless of the adversity they face.

And Tadd, our company’s namesake, someone who left this world far before his time, shone brightly to all who knew him. And though he’s gone, his light is lasting, and it continues to be a source of guidance. We strive to have this loving endeavor, created by Tadd’s family and friends, shine as a beacon of hope, serve as a port of safety and respect, and stand as a consistent, sturdy base of advocacy.

May those who pass this way, either in residence or vocation, enjoy and respect the creation all around, be comfortable in their own skin, embrace the simple things in life, watch over others, stand against adverse winds, and let their Light shine.
