Center for Developmentally Disabled (CDD)

COMMUNITY DAY: Center for people with intellectual disabilities (CDD)

Individuals should be defined by who they are, not by their disability

The Center for Developmentally Disabled strives to help each individual live their best life and be defined by who they are, not by their disability. The non-profit organization supports people with cerebral palsy, Down syndrome, autism and everything in between. Their programs provide housing, residential care and personal care assistance 365 days a year to adults with developmental disabilities. You may have heard the phrase “meet people where they are”. CDD lives by this philosophy every day. It’s about giving others what they need when they need it. They are raising money to buy adaptive equipment – ​​wheelchair accessible tables to sit together, specialized tools to help prepare meals, bathing equipment for non-ambulatory people and music therapy items /Arts and crafts. These items will allow people to live life more fully, make it easier for staff to care for people, and give families a sense of relief that their loved ones are being cared for in a way that meets their individual needs. You can support CDD in several ways. Donate financially to purchase adaptive equipment and support their programs. Most importantly, get involved and help educate the community about developmental disabilities.
