The Albero House for Adults
Adults with Disabilities Can Call St. Mary’s Home, Too
Moving away from the comfortable environment and caring, expert staff they have known can be difficult for the young adults of St. Mary’s Home when they turn 21, and for their families. It also can be difficult to find a comparable place for adults to receive the specialized care that St. Mary’s provides.
In 2013, St. Mary’s expanded to provide our graduates with another option. The Albero House, a 10,000-square-foot wing, features 12 private bedrooms decorated to reflect personal tastes, a spacious common living area, a kitchen, an enclosed porch and a beautifully landscaped courtyard. Large windows flood the rooms and hallways with natural light.
The Albero House is “a lifesaver,” said Nancy Stockner, whose son Josh was the first person to move into The Albero House, on July 30, 2013. “I know he’s set. He’s here. He didn’t have to leave St. Mary’s.”
The Albero House is named after the main benefactors, Carl M. Albero, a founder of the defense contracting company AMSEC and honorary member of St. Mary’s Board of Directors, and his wife, Carole Anne Albero, a retired special education teacher and honorary member of St. Mary’s Auxiliary Board.
