Why Give to Langton Green?
Your gift makes a real difference in the lives of our residents and their families. When you make a gift to Langton Green you are supporting a community founded more than 30 years ago as an alternative to traditional institutions. You are helping to provide homes, support, and a wide variety of services to men and women aged 21 and older with intellectual and developmental disabilities.
At Langton Green we believe that adults with disabilities can choose to live independent, full and healthy lives. We provide several residential living options and a range of services and supports that are designed to help each individual learn new skills and find ways to participate in productive activities.
The Langton Green Community Farm provides vocational training and work opportunities for interested individuals and food for our organization and other nonprofits in need. We donate surplus food from our farm and have active partnerships with nonprofits such as the Maryland Food Bank and Annapolis Light House.
In addition to raising and maintaining fruit, vegetables, and livestock, at the farm we also are a focal point for arts activities, live musical performances, educational and vocational programming for the local county school system, goat yoga, Zumba sessions, and more fun, exciting and therapeutic events and activities developing all the time. Check out our upcoming events listing or the Langton Green Community Farm Facebook page for more information.

Langton Green Community Farm Vocational Program:
Our newest venture, the Langton Green Community Farm in Millersville, Md., is funded through generous donations and grants. The 13-acre farm offers vocational training and supports to our individuals and is a resource for the wider community.
Your gift supports a thriving vocational program for those individuals at Langton Green who are interested in working at the Farm. Your gift can even make the renovation of a home and purchase of new equipment at the farm possible.
Yes. Pledged Gifts may be made in annual installments of cash or stock. Annual gifts can be made as installments, paid monthly, quarterly or semi-annually over 12 months. Multi-year pledge payment installments can be arranged according to your wishes. You will be recognized for the full amount with our deepest appreciation.
Your gift, no matter what the amount, is important! Even $25 can have significant impact on the lives of the individuals who receive our services. While federal and state funding may cover essential services, many of these individuals cannot afford other kinds of basics, like attending a movie, buying an ice cream cone, or joining in a special activity in the community. Your gift makes a difference.
