Because LOGAN is here,
our community is a little bit better place.

At 107 years old, Joe Newman has certainly accomplished a lot in his life.

But he’ll tell you the thing he’s proudest of is the organization he helped create in honor of his beloved daughter.

Rita Jo was injured at birth and lived her 28 years severely disabled. He didn’t want to send her away, so Joe heroically challenged the status quo.  Alongside his wife Sophie, Joe rallied other parents to do the unthinkable—they created LOGAN, opening in 1950 with two teachers, 22 students and $24 in the bank. 

You see, Joe knew these kids needed a place where they could develop as surely as any other child. And in the decades since that first classroom opened, LOGAN has done just that.

Today, their dream lives on. LOGAN has made a lasting impact on the community. People like Joe can entrust LOGAN with something precious—their loved ones. LOGAN can be counted on to be there for them, for as long as they live.

Because LOGAN is here, our community is a little bit better place.
