  • About Palm Beach Habilitation Center


    The Palm Beach Habilitation Center was founded in 1959 by a small group of parents seeking a program to help their adult children with developmental disabilities become more independent. They began their work operating from a modest clubhouse room provided by the Lantana Lions Club, and in 1960, the Palm Beach Habilitation Center moved to Lake Worth to set up operations on 14.5 acres of property donated by the Palm Beach County Board of County Commissioners.

    Over the years, the Palm Beach Habilitation Center's scope broadened to include services for adults with physical and emotional disabilities. By 1995, the number of people served by the PBHC had increased from 38 to over 350. Today the PBHC provides comprehensive services to over 700 individuals with developmental, emotional, and physical disabilities. A primary emphasis of all training and programming at the PBHC continues to be on maximizing the independence of each person served – vocationally, socially and emotionally. Since 1959, over 8,000 people with disabilities have achieved community employment due to the programs offered at the Palm Beach Habilitation Center.
