Having grown up in Warwick, as well as spending many years working with numerous organizations throughout Rhode Island, I have long been aware of Trudeau and the great services they provide. When I joined Trudeau as President and CEO in 2015, I was both impressed and inspired to learn of the enormity of the positive impact on so many individuals, their families and the community.

When Arthur Trudeau started what eventually became the J. Arthur Trudeau Memorial Center, he was driven by a desire to give his son, Kenneth the resources and opportunities he needed to lead a happy and fulfilling life. While much has changed in our 50 plus years, Arthur’s mission has remained intact.

Our guiding principles are what I call “the three I”s:

Integrity – Holding ourselves to the highest moral and ethical standards.

Innovation – Consistently developing new methods and services to meet the growing and changing needs of the individuals and community we serve.

Inclusion – Providing the resources that enable individuals to learn, grow, achieve, and lead productive lives in an inclusive community.

Today, Trudeau is one of the area’s leading providers of services for children and adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities. We currently work with over 3,000 individuals throughout Rhode Island and some nearby cities and towns in Massachusetts and Connecticut.

Much of our growth and success is due to the dedication and compassion of our nearly 600 employees; to the vision and guidance of our Board of Directors, and to the generosity of so many of you who have supported our efforts.
