Spotlight on Charity – Pine Castle

Jan 23, 2023

Pine Castle, located at 4911 Spring Park Road, is a leader in serving adults with intellectual and development differences (I/DD) and providing support to their families across Northeast Florida, committed to assisting anyone with differences.

Pine Castle was founded in 1952 by a group of 33 families of children with I/DD. No local programs or schools existed at that time to provide support services, except for a few distant residential institutions run by the state. Over the years, Pine Castle has transitioned to a work and life skills training and activity center for adults with I/DD.

Today, more than 300 individuals attend daily programs to learn valuable skills. From basic academic training and hands-on job experience to leisure activities and life skills coaching, Pine Castle provides a wide range of opportunities to Learn, Work and Connect. Their vision is for a community where persons with intellectual and development differences achieve their potential for independence.
