The Kennedy Willis Center

Established in 1996, the Kennedy Willis Center at Pathfinder Village has a three-fold mission:  to provide continuing education for families and the community-at-large regarding best practices in supporting individuals with developmental disabilities, to serve as an information and life planning resource for families who have a family member with a developmental disability, and to host and conduct research related to Down syndrome and developmental disabilities.

Since opening, the Kennedy Willis Center has provided assistance and guidance to hundreds of families, care givers, professionals, and organizations regarding the needs of persons with Down syndrome and related disabilities. The Center also provides education and training to future professionals in the field through its internship programs for area undergraduate and graduate students from the northeastern United States.  

The Center is staffed by a full time administrator and support staff with additional support of graduate and undergraduate students from area colleges and universities.
