All About Us!

Howard House is located in the heart of Maplewood near Larpenteur and McKnight; adjacent to a golf course. A small shopping center with restaurants are within walking distance.

Our backyard is fenced in and is permanently decorated with a BBQ grill which we happily use every weekend when the weather permits. Our backyard is perfect for hosting a party or just relaxing and spending time together. We even hosted a graduation party for a recent graduate!

Several of us attend day programs, while others attend school. We all like to spend time with family and friends.
