Schott Communities is a private, not-for-profit, United Way participating agency, founded to address the needs of persons who are deaf or disabled in South Florida. The agency is an extension of the ministry of the Archdiocese of Miami for persons who are deaf or disabled.

Unique to Florida, Schott Communities develops residential housing for the deaf or disabled; designs programs to assist clients develop skills for independent living; offers clients counseling services and educational programs to promote self-sufficiency, and provides clients with social, recreational and spiritual opportunities to enhance their quality and enjoyment of life. In an environment of caring and dignity, persons who are deaf or disabled are encouraged and challenged to grow in self-acceptance and independence.
Schott Communities 


The Schott Center provides social and educational programs to more than 225 persons who are deaf or disabled living in the local communities as well as in Schott residences. In addition to its scheduled programs and services, the Center networks and collaborates with numerous civic and community organizations also serving this population. Public advocacy on behalf of this special-needs population is an important component of the organization's mission. The Center's outreach program provides food and equipment to homebound persons who are deaf or disabled. Schott Center and Residences 

The Schott Residences consist of a group home for developmentally disabled women and a six-apartment complex for the deaf or visually impaired. Both facilities were built in 2000 as state-of-the-art residences, situated in a spacious, suburban community. The residences' staff is dedicated to the promotion of independence, self-sufficiency and quality of life. Integration and involvement of residents with the local community is encouraged and facilitated through the provision of transportation services.

The Schott Chapel  The Schott Chapel is a haven for spiritual enrichment and growth. Located on the Schott campus, the Chapel offers liturgy, opportunities for private prayer, and educational programs for Schott residents and others from the surrounding communities. Persons of all faiths are welcome to the Chapel to draw strength and vitality from the well of its spirituality.

The Schott Communities is named for the parents of Joseph J. Schott, Jr., who purchased its "home" in a quasi-rural section of Cooper City, Florida and established the Schott Memorial Foundation to
help fund its programs and services. The organization is governed by a Board of Directors and is managed by an Executive Director and assistant directors and coordinators. A cadre of volunteers also serve the Communities.

It is our hope that this brief introduction will prompt you to continue learning about Schott Communities, its history, programs, partners in service, and staff.
