Our Beginning..

LVE Care & Group Homes LLC was founded in 2015 by co-owners Danelle LaMaide and Lauren Venturo. Both have an elevated level of compassion based on their own personal experiences with family members. Together they share over 25 years experience working, both in home and in a school setting, with individuals that possessed a diversity of special needs.

Danelle has a Master's in Special Education and taught in a Special Education classroom setting for 14 years.
Lauren has a Bachelor's in Psychology and taught in a Special Education classroom setting for 10 years.

Determined to build a lasting legacy in helping the less fortunate, they formed LVE Care & Group Homes with their same passion and commitment toward helping developmental disabled individuals discover a new sense of independence and productivity.

Our Passion: People with developmental disabilities can still enjoy meaningful relationships with friends, family, and others in their lives; experience personal health and growth; and live in the home of their choice.
While every person’s story is different, the pathway to a rewarding life starts with ascribing an individual’s identity to their abilities, not their disabilities.

suddenly you're doing the impossible"
- Francis of Assisi
