Developmental Disabilities Services

We are here to help you or your loved one when
you need it most.

Developmental Disabilities Services

We support children and adults with developmental disabilities to find, begin, and continue on a path to the highest quality of life possible. The journey begins with intake, eligibility, finding benefits, finding services, and coordinating services. The journey continues with services that help people to live and work independently, including skills training, job training, respite, and residential supports.
