Imagine for a moment all of the needs that you have had in your lifetime from birth to the present and the needs that you anticipate having until the day you die. It is difficult to name all of the needs that people have throughout their lifetimes. But, at Michael Dunn Center, providing for the needs of children and adults with developmental disabilities is our mission, our goal, our passion.

Please don’t confuse meeting our supported persons’ needs with any type of institutional setting. In fact, the opposite is true. Each service is designed to support an individual’s choices to be involved in their own communities. Each service strives to integrate each individual into their community in ways that are meaningful and valuable to both the individual and the community. In fact, Michael Dunn Center has a long history of partnering with groups and individuals to create opportunities for people supported to be active in their respective communities.

It is difficult to summarize the many ways Michael Dunn Center meets needs. Please learn more about each individual program by clicking on the links to the programs. As you see, the programs are presented in a way that takes you through the daily life of a supported person. We also invite you to come see for yourself the many ways the persons we support are achieving independence and realizing opportunities through the services provided by Michael Dunn Center.
