“I love it here” – James

James, a resident at Bancroft for 54 years, moved into the Haddonfield Campus residences when he was only 17. He has lived at our Mullica Hill location as well as various group homes before coming to the Judith B. Flicker Residences, Bancroft’s facility for older adults, when it opened 15 years ago. Throughout James’ time at Bancroft, he has gained important job and life skills. Even more importantly, he has benefited from lasting relationships. One friend, John, has been his housemate for over 15 years. James loves living at Bancroft and when he is away he often tells his sister Joanna, “It’ll be good to get back. It’ll be good to see my friends.”

“Tabitha is surrounded by those meeting her needs while keeping her safe.”- Rita, Tabitha’s mom

After trying unsuccessfully to get help 20 years ago, Tabitha was admitted into Bancroft’s Lindens Neurobehavioral Program, an intensive therapy and educational center which helps children struggling with challenging and aggressive behaviors. Bancroft’s dedicated staff members helped Tabitha minimize those behaviors and she graduated from The Bancroft School. She now lives in an adult group home and participates in Bancroft’s day program. She has become a friendly person who loves to say “hi” to everyone she meets.

“We have Bancroft to thank for so many happy moments we’ve shared with Luke.”- Luke’s parents

After receiving an autism diagnosis at age two, Luke’s behaviors, communication challenges, fear of any changes and intense need for repetition became overwhelming. His family turned to Bancroft for answers. Through 18 years of early intervention and continued services, Luke is now thriving as a student in The Bancroft School’s Transitional Program, which prepares students to live as independently as possible. Dr. Ann Leahey, Luke’s mother, said “We know the day will come when we can no longer care for our son at home, and knowing we can rely on Bancroft to support him throughout his life has given us immeasurable hope and peace of mind.”

A Master Plan For Our Future

So much more than a relocation of The Bancroft School, The Lindens Center for Autism and Campus Residences, the 80-acre Bancroft Campus at Mount Laurel has been designed to serve the extraordinary needs of special education students, their families and the region’s special needs community.
