From its inception, The Villages, Inc. has always been the model for group homes that provide quality care and nurturing environments. Created by Dr. Karl Menninger, The Villages, Inc. was founded in 1964 with their first home opening in the winter of 1969 in Topeka, Kansas. With Dr. Menninger’s constant belief in the program, The Villages, Inc. went on to create four more homes in Topeka, two homes in Lawrence, Kansas and six homes across the state of Indiana. Presently, The Villages, Inc. is compiled of the five residences in Topeka and the two in Lawrence.
The amazing staff at The Villages, Inc. works endlessly to provide the children in their care with a safe environment that promotes personal growth at all times. Committed to the principles that Dr. Karl Menninger established over 50 years ago, The Villages, Inc. aims to give youth in their care the same opportunities that every child deserves.
