About Bancroft

Bancroft is a leading provider of programs and supports for children and adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities, autism and acquired brain injuries. Our services include special education, vocational training and supported employment, structured day programs, campus and community living programs, short-term behavioral stabilization services for children, in-home and outpatient services.

A private, nonprofit organization, Bancroft was founded in Haddonfield, N.J., in 1883. Over the years, we have grown to become the fifth-largest private employer in Camden County. We currently serve more than 1,300 children and adults annually in settings throughout Camden, Burlington, Gloucester, Ocean, Middlesex and Salem counties in New Jersey, and in Delaware. In October 2009, the organization began operating a Philadelphia, Pa., program—The Walker Center at Bancroft—which serves adults.

For over 125 years, Bancroft has been making a difference in the lives of many. The organization is well known for helping people with disabilities achieve fulfilling lives while improving their function, activity and participation in society. Bancroft’s reputation for excellence is based on its commitment to providing a spectrum of individualized services, treating each person with respect and dignity, and providing services in an encouraging and supportive environment.
