As a part of the mission of ADDS we provide an array of services designed to create appropriate options for individuals with developmental disabilities. The services are individualized to address the needs of each person served. These services include residential, supported living, developmental training and other ancillary services.
Harvey House, Breckenridge Heights, C.T. Loyd Apartments and 3 Independent Supported Living (ISL) Homes - Our residential homes are operated with the belief that individuals with developmental disabilities have the right to lead lives that are community-based. The residential services are based in an atmosphere that encourages growth and social interaction with each other and the community in which they reside. These homes each have 24 hour supervision and supports and offer community integration and inclusion services to assist individuals in participating in community activities. We staff a full-time RN to assist with medical follow up, consultation, and coordination of needed medical care, medications, etc.

The Developmental Training Center offers day program services designed to support individuals with significant developmental disabilities to develop to their full potential and to experience the community in which they reside. This program provides habilitative training and supports to enhance quality of life and achievement of optimal physical, emotional, and independent functioning.
The Case Management Program offers advocacy, assessment, planning, communication, education, and resource management services. Support Coordinators work closely with individuals and families to assess, plan, and implement the necessary supports for the individuals to reach their goals. The Support Coordinators also monitor and evaluate all programs in which individuals participate in order to ensure high quality and effective supports. Most simply, the Support Coordinators link individuals with appropriate providers and resources.
Support Coordinators are:
Mark McDowell, Supervisor
Sherri Chedwick, TCM Resource Specialist
Transportation and Family Support
Requests are considered on a case-by-case basis through the development of annual support plans. Transportation is routinely provided to the local sheltered workshop. Some transportation assistance is available for medical appointments and other needs specific to an individual’s disabilities.
