Mary, seen in the photo, at home with her supported living coach, is one of the many people whose lives have been changed by MTC.
Mary’s story is typical of many of the people we serve who are now senior citizens. As a baby with mental retardation given up at birth, her first fifty years were spent institutionalized.
Since leaving the institution thirty years ago to come to MTC, Mary has been playing catch up. With appropriate services, she continues to advance, particularly in areas of communication, her greatest challenge.
And while we know that her future needs will become more challenging, our commitment to Mary remains absolute. Despite the onslaught of state reductions and threats to Federal support, MTC is committed to making sure she ages with as much dignity and grace as possible, does not spend her old age warehoused and institutionalized. Her youth was forfeit, with MTC, her future is not.
