Developmental Enterprises Corporation was founded in 1971 by a group of parents with intellectually and developmentally disabled children. Knowing there were few opportunities for their children as adults to better themselves and contribute to the communities in which they live, they set about to create an organization where passion, training and vision would make a positive difference in the lives of their children and other developmentally and intellectually disabled men and women in our area.

Since then, DEC has grown to be the largest provider of vocational and habilitation services for thousands of developmentally and intellectually disabled individuals in our area. Currently, DEC employs approximately 190 caring and dedicated employees that work in our 5 day program centers, 7 community homes and out in the community offering Supported Living and Employment Services for approximately 500 individuals. We believe the individuals we serve have the right to live "everyday lives" - lives in which they make their own decisions, have friends and social interaction, and contribute to society.

DEC focuses on the abilities and competencies of the individuals rather than their limitations. We promote dignity, self-determination and independence through a combination of individually tailored habilitative therapies, life skills training, job training and employment services, therapeutic and enrichment services, and community integration.

We are DEC...where passion, training and vision make a positive difference.
