A Message from Trudeau’s President

Welcome to the J. Arthur Trudeau Memorial Center.

For 60 years, the Trudeau Center has been making a positive impact on the lives of thousands of children and adults with developmental and intellectual disabilities. One of the first organizations of its type here in Rhode Island, it has a revered history, is known for its quality programs and services, and is an agency that truly lives its mission— “To promote an enhanced quality of life for individuals with developmental disabilities.”

It is an honor to be the President and Chief Executive Officer, and I could not be prouder of the Trudeau organization, its extraordinary accomplishments, and the profound impact that it has on people’s lives. The foundation, of course, is its many employees and volunteers, families, and the many children and adults we support each and every day. Since 1964, the Trudeau organization has worked tirelessly to meet the needs of the disability community, just as J. Arthur Trudeau had envisioned when he founded this organization 60 years ago.

Today, the Trudeau Center is strong, vibrant, and an innovator in the field. Our organization remains one of the area’s preeminent providers of I/DD services not only in Rhode Island but also in some neighboring cities and towns in Massachusetts and Connecticut. Although our history is rich, our future is also bright and our commitment to people with disabilities has never been stronger—just as Arthur Trudeau would have wanted it.

Please take some time to browse through our website to learn more about the Trudeau Center and all that it has to offer, and I assure you that you will leave impressed.
