Overview

Overview

Protestant Guild for Human Services says

The Guild for Human Services is a community-based, day and residential school specializing in vocational and life preparation for students with a diverse array of developmental disabilities and autism spectrum disorders, including nonverbal students and students with mental health diagnoses. Hallmarks of The Guild experience include individualized instruction, neighborhood-based residences and paying jobs for students - where they learn the satisfaction of being contributing members of society. The Guild has its origins in The Protestant Guild for the Blind, which began in the 1940s as a collaboration of independent churches providing religious instruction to blind youth in the Boston area. During the 1950s, The Guild opened offices in Boston and relied on the support of volunteers from local communities.In 1970, The Guild sponsored a learning center for multiply handicapped blind adolescents. A year later, it opened a facility in Watertown to house its offices, headquarters, and an expanded learning center, including both residential and day students. It was called The Learning Center for the Multiply Handicapped, but as the population it served shifted to a majority of individuals with moderate mental retardation and other complicating conditions, its name was later changed to The Learning Center.
