Encouragement – Friendship – Support

The Southwest Center for the developmentally disabled provides a wide variety of community based services for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities. Each service is geared towards helping each person to live, work, and enjoy life in their community.


Adult Day Training

We offer independence, friendships, and encouragement, as well as teach life skills such as culinary arts, daily living, and arts & crafts.

Residential Services

Our Residential program allows individuals with intellectual and/or developmental disabilities to live in their own homes.

Community Access

Imagine wanting to do more, be more a part of, and have more friends in your community. Sometimes all it takes is a person to help you connect to everything that is around you!

Transportation Services

We have wheelchair-accessible vehicles to transport the individuals we serve to our programs and to help transport other people in the community to medical appointments.
