Cherry Hill, NJ - Bancroft has solidified plans for the largest expansion in the organization's history with the completion of the purchase of 80-acres in Mount Laurel, NJ, which will become The Bancroft Campus at Mount Laurel. Bancroft is the largest provider in New Jersey of services and support for the developmentally and intellectually disabled including autism as well as those in need of neurological rehabilitation.
A leader in caring for special needs children and adults since 1883, Bancroft’s plans include a relocation and expansion of its flagship, The Bancroft School, as well as The Lindens Center for Autism, Campus Residences, Enrichment and Training Institute and new programs featuring recreation, socialization and technological opportunities for children, adults and families throughout the region.
“This is a significant step towards our goal of reaching more children and families who need our resources in the special needs community,” said Toni Pergolin, President and CEO at Bancroft. “We have envisioned a campus that takes our school and pediatric programs to a new level and provides new opportunities for engagement. This campus will offer a destination of hope for families in the greater autism and developmental disability community.”
Sale of Bancroft’s current school campus in Haddonfield is slated for June 2016.
“Bancroft has been part of our community for several decades as we host their group homes and more recently, Bancroft NeuroRehab Resnick Center in Mount Laurel,” said Mayor Linda Bobo. “We are thrilled they will be expanding their presence in our region and will provide families new opportunity to grow and learn.”
Bancroft will begin site preparation this spring with an anticipated completion of the project for the 2017/2018 school year.
