Our Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities (IDD) programs provide activities, services, learning opportunities, and supports to help individuals with intellectual and/or developmental disabilities live independently in their communities.
IDD services provides year-round, quality-driven social, recreational, vocational, and educational programs for individuals and provides support to their families.
Through a loving, person-centered approach, our IDD team of dedicated and trained professionals assists individuals and their families in learning life skills and self-advocacy, while building self-esteem, confidence, and independence. We work together to improve individuals’ activities of daily life and to enhance quality of life through exercise, education, arts and crafts, and recreational/leisure activities.
Our IDD Supported Employment program works with individuals to identify skills for competitive employment. Family Supports offers supports such as respite, personal care items, and special dietary supplies for IDD individuals. Click here for a referral form.
Our services help teach and coach individuals and assist in acquiring, retaining, or improving socialization and networking, independent use of community resources, and adaptive skills required for active community participation outside the home.
We practice a person-centered philosophy of care where thinking, planning, and practices ensure individual goals and service delivery are balanced between what is important to an individual and what is important for an individual.
Transportation to and from these programs is available for most participants if needed.
