"Supporting people to live their life to the fullest."



To qualify for services, an individual must possess a diagnosis of a developmental disability as defined by OPWDD.  The onset of the disability must occur prior to the age of 22. Such diagnoses are listed to the right.


Some individuals who do not meet the above listed diagnoses may still be eligible for Supported Employment services based on ACCES eligibility.


We are committed to establishing open lines of communication so that any employee or

volunteer may feel comfortable in reporting any concerns they may have. Communication

is the most important key in making the Corporate Compliance Program a success.
