We treat children and adults diagnosed with developmental and/or intellectual disabilities with care and understanding, so they can gain independence and self-respect.
Whether at home, out in the community, at the workplace or at one of our center-based activity locations, our services are individualized and designed to support people in reaching their goals and the path to the life they want to lead.
When we first connect with individuals seeking any of our support services, we guide them through the process and ask them to tell us their story and their goals and desires for independence.
Individuals are empowered to reach their highest potential and we help them build the skills necessary to flourish and excel in the community.
