On a quiet Sunday evening, in mid-October, devastation hit our entire ELADC family. While everyone was at home with their families staying safe from COVID-19, our building suffered a terrible fire. The fire damaged the roof, walls, windows, and office equipment. The entire building has also sustained major smoke and water damage. if you would like to donate to aid us in the restoration of our building please click here.

Our Day Programs in the office have been halted since the Coronavirus closed our doors in late March. Daily updates regarding the current state of the virus and various NM announcements are available on and Due to a structural fire that our building sustained, our offices will be closed until restorations are completed.

How Do You See Me?

Actress Olivia Wilde appears in the latest moving film by Saatchi & Saatchi for Italy's national organization for people with Down Syndrome.
The spot, directed by Reed Morano at Pulse Films, highlights World Down Syndrome Day on March 21. It aims to start a conversation around how those living with Down Syndrome see themselves and how they can be disadvantaged when people pre-judge them based on their condition.
