Project descriptionLukas is a year round residential community for adults with developmental disabilities, located in scenic Temple, NH. It provides a caring, therapeutic environment in which each person is recognized as a unique human being with dignity, freedom and purpose. Disabled members live in extended family households with able coworkers and share in the work in crafts studios, gardens and households, as well as a rich variety of artistic and cultural events. The therapeutic focus of the Lukas Community is inspired by the teachings of the Austrian philosopher and humanitarian, Rudolf Steiner.
