Barry, Berrien, Branch, Calhoun, Cass, Kalamazoo, St. Joseph, Van Buren, Children with Special Needs, Community Education & Centers
• We provide services to people living in Barry, Berrien, Branch, Calhoun, Cass, Kalamazoo, St. Joseph & Van Buren Counties who have a variety of disabilities, including physical, neurological, psychiatric, learning, cognitive, and sensory disabilities. Whether you were born with a disability or acquired a disability later in life through accident, illness or through the aging process, you are welcome here. We are a resource for friends and family members of people with disabilities as well as community professionals and other human service providers.
• What is unique about us is that we, too, are people with disabilities!  At least 51% of our Board of Directors and staff members identify as having some kind of disability.  Our philosophy has always been that people who live the disability experience are experts on disability issues, and that services we provide should be created with the direct input of those they will impact.  That makes us different from the traditional social services model.
