Lakes Homes & Program Development, Inc., prides itself on being an exceptional care provider to individuals who need our assistance.  Our first clients moved in June of 1980.  Our company has neatly emerged into a leading non-profit residential service in greater northern Minnesota.


We continue to develop new programs to meet our clients needs.  Lakes Homes selects employees with excellent work ethic, caring personalities and a desire to enhance human worth and potential.  I am looking forward to meeting and visiting with you about the quality services we provide.
