Lubbock State Supported Living Center

Opened in 1969 with 11 individuals, Lubbock State Supported Living Center serves as home to approximately 300 people with the diagnosis of mental retardation. The 24-hour residential facility sits on 226 acres and has 15 residential buildings.

Using a team approach, the people served, their families, and staff together develop plans for services to meet each person's needs and preferences. The plans ensure the home environment, daily schedule, meal plan, job, and training needs, and hobbies are best suit to that individual.

The Lubbock State Supported Living Center also provides a variety of programs and recreational activities including a swimming pool and opportunities for individuals to participate in Special Olympics games. Other activities include monthly birthday dances, an annual dinner theater, special holiday dances, a fashion show, hay ride, and parade.

Two of the school's special partners are the Lubbock State Supported Living Center Parent Association and the Volunteer Services Council for Lubbock State Supported Living Center. These two organizations help to raise funds to provide buildings, equipment, and other special needs. Some of these include the Kenneth May Thera-Pool, the Path of Life Garden, outdoor pavilions, and the Sunny Days Park. These two groups also have provided much of the landscaping and patio furniture for the homes, not only through the donated funds but also through many hours of volunteer service.

In June 2004, the Lubbock community gathered to help the Center celebrate its 35th anniversary. Throughout the years, the people at the school have enjoyed the support of the local community through volunteer hours, donated funds, and a voice on behalf of the people with disabilities. Their lives are rich because of the caring of the local community.
