History[edit]

Dedicated on March 30, 1964, Leesville State School, as it was first known, had a capacity of 96 persons who resided in two 48-bed dormitories. Now renovated, capacity has downsized and the mission of the facility has changed.

The new name, Leesville Residential & Employment Services Center reflects the focus on supports and services now provided to serve citizens with disabilities with more choices and self direction in their lives.
