About Linnea
History: Linnea Residential Home started because of the efforts and 
innovation of the parents of a child who had developmental disabilities. 
After exploring possible placement alternatives for their daughter, they saw
the need for a new kind of home for persons with developmental disabilities 
and other challenges: a relatively small facility, with a warm and inviting 
atmosphere, and within close proximity to family and friends.  

In communicating this need to the community, a group formed to develop 
such a facility. With a broad base of support and encouragement from 
friends, community members, civic and church groups, and with 
many volunteer hours and expertise provided by 20 dedicated people, 
Linnea Residence became a reality.
