  • Develop daily and independent living skills
  • Socialize with others to enhance interpersonal skills.

Our services are…


We focus on a person-driven approach, recognizing the individual themselves as well as their support system are in the best position to know what will help them lead the most fulfilling and independent life possible.


Individuals work with our program manager and staff to plan activities that are specific to their personal goals. We work within the ISP process to make sure that our individuals receive a plan of activities that directly support what they want to achieve. Whether the goal is centered around employment, social interaction, or life skills, we make sure that each individual feels supported and encouraged to accomplish what they want.


Each individual leads the decision-making process concerning the type and amount of support they receive. We evolve as their needs change and work with DDS to offer individuals and their families the opportunity to exercise control over the supports that are available to them.
