Latham Centers Gets a New Dormitory


Now completed!

Latham Centers provides innovative treatment and support services for intellectually disabled children and adults, and for individuals living with Prader-Willi Syndrome (PWS). Since 1970, Latham Centers has been working together with students, residents, their families, and a dedicated staff to bring hope and change to young people and adults who face tough challenges. Throughout the last 46 years, Latham Centers has seen remarkable growth as their capabilities expand and the need for their services increases.  In 2015, Latham hired architectural firm OMR Architects to design an 11,000 square foot dormitory.

In August of 2015, Cape Associates broke ground and began work on the accessible facility that includes 22 dorm rooms, 9 bathrooms, 4 living rooms, a study, a dining room, a student learning kitchen, 2 staff areas and a 3-stop elevator.  With a substantial completion date forecast for July of this year, the Latham Centers campus is seeing rapid transformation.

A large percentage of students and adult residents who call Latham Centers home are challenged by PWS – a serious, random, and incurable genetic disorder that manifests many serious physical, cognitive and developmental issues.  In addition to PWS, Latham provides care to children and adults with multiple diagnoses, which can include Asperger’s Syndrome, Autism and Reactive Attachment Disorder.  Because of its innovative programs and dedicated staff, Latham is the leading school in North America that specializes in the treatment of Prader-Willi Syndrome.    To learn more about this organization please visit
