Since our founding in early 2008, we’ve developed the expertise, have accumulated the experience, and continually maintain specialized skills to care for individuals who may have more challenging support needs.

Life Centers of Kansas began out of a passion for providing a better option for adults with intellectual disabilities. Our will to break the mold on what group home living can be, drove us to turn hard work and inspiration into what Life Centers has become today. Since that time, our mission remains the same.

Life Centers of Kansas facilities and homes are located in Johnson County Kansas.
