The Anne Carlsen Center

The Anne Carlsen Center is a non-profit organization that has been providing supports and services for 75 years to individuals in North Dakota with developmental disability or delay. Rich in tradition, the Anne Carlsen Center has positioned itself on the cutting edge of innovation with unique programs, creative therapies and advanced assistive technologies that meet the specific needs of those we serve.

When our doors opened in 1941, we served drastically different individuals than we do today. Our current clients have far more complex physical, behavioral and learning needs and the geographical region where we offer programming has grown from a regional hub to a statewide presence. We help nurture the abilities of more than 2,600 individuals with eight office locations offering life-changing services in every county in North Dakota.

“This is most important for everyone to know: We must educate people to see the similarities, not the differences – and to see the person, not the disability.”
