Who We Are…

A private, 501 (c)3, non-profit organization established in 1954 by a group of concerned citizens who saw a need in the community for greater services and support for people with disabilities.

  • Governed by a volunteer Board of Directors that work closely with staff to establish goals and objectives to make our operations more efficient and broaden our reach in the community.
  • A highly regarded employer of nearly 250 qualified staff members who serve over 1,500 individuals and families across the state each year.
