So thankful for Benedictine. I can’t imagine where Todd would be if he hadn’t been given the opportunity by Sister Jeannette 34 years ago. A wonderful blessing.

Benedictine has been a life-saving blessing for our Jason. We are thankful every day for the loving care and guidance provided for our special guy!

And we thank you for creating a quality of life for our Gary that we never thought was possible.

Ditto to all. Benedictine is healing our family and our Jakey!! The World According to Jake & Empowering Autism Caregivers, LLC TM

Benedictine is also healing our family and Jimmy

Benedictine provides the community with a level of quality and commitment that enriches our lives.

a great place and thank you Mary Lynn Wright

I love Benedictine ♥️

Benedictine has been a good place for my friends. I like being near the ERC with my girlfriend 3 days a week and doing Positive Strides with her. Lisa Serio likes giving me hugs. She wants to go Swimming with me
