About Us


Kambly as a boarding school for mentally impaired children, Kambly has evolved into an adult foster care home that is considered a "preferred provider" by community mental health and social service professionals.

Kambly’s twenty-four-hour residential service includes clean and comfortable rooms, nutritional meals and snacks, recreational and group activities while under the personal care of a dedicated and trained staff.

The mission of Kambly Living Center is to provide the opportunity for adults with disabled to achieve emotional and social growth in a secure, home-like atmosphere. When you walk in it looks like most homes only with more family members. There is a great room with a number of couches and large television. The residents gather here in the evenings to talk and watch their favorite programs. Some of them work on crafts, read or play games. Residents have certain responsibilities they perform: some go to school, some have part-time jobs and some enjoy helping with the routine tasks around the house. Julie is our "#1 Kitchen Helper" her joy in helping with the dishes adds to our family feel.
