Supporting Northeast Ohio’s Developmental Disabilities Community Since 1967

The Charles and Salome Reymann Foundation serves people with developmental disabilities, their families and caregivers, and the dedicated people who educate and support them.

What We Support

Founded in 1967, the Charles and Salome Reymann Foundation is focused on three major areas of support for the development disabilities community in Northeast Ohio. We support licensed group living facilities that provide independent living for persons with special needs. We sponsor retreats and other forms of support for families and caregivers of people with developmental disabilities. We also encourage careers in special education by funding scholarships.
