Our Mission
Supporting teens and adults with developmental disabilities so that they can live meaningful, productive, socially connected lives in their home community. 

GROW    LEARN   CONNECT

 

How We Do It


Our Place targets personal growth through skills development and immersion in community life so that participants can be full members of their community. We provide intensive relationships with staff, peers, mentors and community volunteers as this is the most effective way to attain personal objectives. Activities address the components of a rich life: work, socializing, volunteer service and lifelong learning. We offer more than 40 distinct programs, with 70% in community settings. 

We call our teens and adults participants because they are fully engaged in designing their days, choosing how they spend their time, setting their goals and connecting with the people they like. We think of our staff members as life coaches, assisting participants in setting and attaining their goals.
