What is Mountain Lake Services?
Mountain Lake Services began in 1967 with 15 citizens who were concerned about the lack of support for people with developmental disabilities in their communities. From our beginning, providing vocational training at our work center, Essex Industries, through the development of residential and day services, we now offer a wide array of services to suit any need and capability.
Here at Mountain Lake Services our mission is to enrich the lives of people with developmental disabilities, their families and our communities. By offering a comprehensive range of services we ensure that we are indeed meeting the needs of the individuals we support, their families and our communities.
Essex Industries, a work center operated by Mountain Lake Services, makes fine wood products for the canoe manufacturing industry and other customers.
The Mountain Weavers Guild makes exceptional handcrafted baskets, sold at craft fairs and farmers' markets throughout the Adirondacks and in their shop on Main Street, Port Henry, NY.
