Baltimore  – Penn-Mar Human Services, the region’s leading provider of services for individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD), announced today it has purchased a new building located in the Washington Heights Medical Center in Westminster, Md. to support its programs and services in Carroll County, Md.  

Penn-Mar had previously owned and occupied a building on Stoner Avenue in Westminster. But after several years of productive use, and the expansion of community-based programming, the nonprofit outgrew the facility and decided to sell. Then in Q1 2024, Penn-Mar’s leadership team decided to look for a location in Carroll County that could fulfill the requirements of the people they support, their team, and their families. The new location will serve as a home-base for team members who can offer facility-based supports for a limited number of people, complimenting the community-based partnerships that Penn-Mar has developed. In addition, the building allows for greater opportunities for people with an IDD to have experience in, education about, and exposure to life in their local communities. 

“Our team’s hard work and commitment continue to create new opportunities,” says Penn-Mar Human Services CEO Greg Miller. “I believe a more comprehensive home-base in Westminster will further meet the needs of the people we support and their families, and I’m grateful for their efforts and excited about the future of our services.”

Miller adds that the search for new opportunities to assist the people Penn-Mar supports is ongoing and commensurate with the group’s mission to “support people to live courageously in pursuit of their best life”.
