Adhar, the Association of Parents of Special Adults is a lifelong home for intellectually challenged adults. Adhar Badlapur was essentially born out of a concern all parents of special children could identify with “who will take care of our special children after us?”
Late Mr M. G. Gore, a renowned Social Worker with 35 years of working for Children’s Aid Society, witnessed the trials of these parents from up close. In 1990, he gathered 25-30 parents of special adults and came up with the unique idea of building a lifelong home and rehabilitation of Special Adults.
Adhar works in the spirit of Trusteeship and is managed by a Board of Trustees.
At present we have 335 + Special Adults under our care in two units in Badlapur and Nasik. We are providing them with lifelong care, training and rehabilitation facilities with the help of Psychologist, Psychiatrist, Physiotherapist, Occupational Therapist, Medical Officers, Social Workers, Special Teachers, Caretakers and other Office Staff.
