Necco also builds community.

Sometimes it really does take a village to raise a child. So we built one.


Located in southeast Ohio, the Necco Center is situated on a beautiful 34-acre campus within the Wayne National Forest. The facility is a residential center that provides round-the-clock care and supervision for male youths, ages 9 to 21. The Center specializes in supporting individuals with borderline intellectual functioning or lower, pervasive developmental disorder (including Autism Spectrum Disorder), and learning disorders that interfere with the ability to benefit from traditional educational programming. In addition to providing an education, social activities and round-the-clock supervision, The Center also has on-site mental health professionals to address the residents’ mental health needs.
