By visiting this site and learning about the people we serve and the services we provide, we invite you to join us in our commitment to offer services to all children and adults with developmental disabilities in our area of East Tennessee. We are proud of the quality of service we provide. However, the needs are great. Funding for services is limited. There are many people in the communities we serve who do not receive any funding for much needed services. Take time and learn about Who We Are and What We Do. We believe if you can see for yourself the people we serve and the support we provide you will want to know How You Can Help.

If you are interested in a career serving individuals with developmental disabilities, please visit our Job Opportunities page. If you are looking for services for someone with a developmental disability, you can find information at Let Us Help.

Join us in celebrating the independence gained and the opportunities created for children and adults with disabilities at Michael Dunn Center!
