Developmental Services

Our Developmental Services team enhances the quality of life for individuals with developmental disabilities and their families, promote social inclusion, and help foster the unique abilities our clients have. We do this by assisting adults with developmental disabilities residing at home with their families or living in the community with little or no support.

We can assist with:

  • Providing information and make referrals to needed community services
  • Arranging for needed supports and services to best meet the individual/families needs
  • Advocating on behalf of the individual/family to access and maintain support services
  • Providing individual support to meet individual/families’ goals and needs
  • Enhancing strengths and capacities in individuals and families using natural or formal supports
  • Providing emotional support and guidance
