At Langton Green we pride ourselves on the recognition we receive for our excellence and our relationship with the wider community. In fact, Langton Green has a long history of community leadership and partnership.
All of Langton Green’s programming efforts are focused on assisting the individuals we serve to develop and maintain connections with the community. In addition to ensuring that the individuals we serve can access religious services, concerts, sporting events, and other recreational activities, we also actively work in collaboration with other community groups.
Our volunteer programming offers opportunities for our neighbors to interact with the individuals that we serve -- and for these individuals to interact with the community, and be even more active in volunteering and giving back. We are currently engaged in ongoing volunteer activities with The Annapolis Light House, The Chesapeake Bay Foundation, The Maryland Food Bank, and a number of local churches.
Langton Green is the only institution of its kind in Maryland to be awarded Quality Assurances accreditation by the Council on Quality and Leadership (CQL), a prestigious national organization that exceeds state and federal standards of care.
Langton Green is the only nonprofit of its kind to own and operate a community farm. The 13-acre Langton Green Community Farm in Millersville, Md. offers vocational and work opportunities for the individuals we serve and is a resource for the wider community.

Our newest venture, the Langton Green Community Farm in Millersville, Md., is funded through generous donations and grants. The farm offers vocational programs and supports to our individuals and is an educational resource for the wider community. Working side-by-side with volunteers and staff to plant, harvest, and sell fresh produce, the individuals we serve form meaningful relationships with each other and the wider community.
At the farm we produce sustainably grown produce for our homes and for sale to the local community. Langton Green Community Farm donates surplus food and has community partnerships with nonprofits such as the Maryland Food Bank and the Annapolis Light House.
The Langton Green Community Farm also provides vocational training and volunteer opportunities for interested parties from the wider community—not just the individuals we serve. 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 that are developing all the time.
