The Benedictine Open Community Program

The Benedictine Open Community Program was established in 1982 in Maryland to serve the multiple needs of persons ages 21 and over with developmental disabilities with high quality residential, vocational and health care services. We currently operate 18 homes and an extensive vocational program in Maryland. The OCP is licensed by the Maryland Department of Health and Mental Hygiene Developmental Disabilities Administration. In addition the OCP is accredited by the surrounding states of Delaware, New Jersey and Virginia, as well as the District of Columbia.


"Our Vision is to see people with developmental disabilities living meaningful, productive, personally satisfying and well supported lives in the communities of their choice."
