Cadmus is a conscious community of people who wish to enrich themselves by living with people who have intellectual/developmental disabilities.
Cadmus runs on the principles of shared vision, interdependence and interaction. We believe that a system based on these principles will value all people and create conditions for people who have unique needs to be supported and treated with dignity, respect and attention to the specifics of their individual lives. We believe that people learn, live and labor most effectively when they are appreciated, honored and valued for the contributions they make to the common good.
Many of the people who head our households have come from Camphill communities, and Cadmus has strong ties with Camphill. We are currently applying to become an affiliate member of the Camphill Association of North America.
Being outdoors, connected to the land is an important part of our day. We hike, swim, ski and skate, and Our households maintain gardens, have pets and small farm animals, and value the importance of healthy food.
We pride ourselves on our ability to create a residential or day program that will suit each individual’s interests and needs, rather than trying to fit people into a general model.
