Who We Are

Our Vision

Our vision is of a community where those with and without disabilities learn to share and enrich each other’s lives through meaningful interactions that cultivate mutual respect and unconditional love.

Our Mission

Our mission is to offer highly compassionate, capable care for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities so they may experience a life of abundant possibilities.

Cedar Lake was founded in 1970 by Louisville-area parents of people with intellectual and developmental disabilities. Cedar Lake Lodge began providing intensive supports in 1974, and added community-based support options, Cedar Lake Residences, in 1989. Cedar Lake is a faith-based organization and is formally affiliated with the Lutheran Church.

Cedar Lake is the largest private provider of residential and community-based services for adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities in the state of Kentucky.

Collectively, Cedar Lake operations employ nearly 500 staff members and have an annual operating budget in excess of $30 million, providing supports to more than 250 people with intellectual and developmental disabilities.
