When you come to CDE, you are in charge of your own future. Do you want to find transportation? Learn how to make healthy choices? Get a job? Tell us your hopes and dreams and we will help you make them real. Together, we will create an Independent Living Plan (ILP), with resources, steps and timing that are comfortable for you. Big or small, if your dreams are important to you, they are important to us.
We want to help you become an active, contributing member of your community, living, learning, playing, working, and worshipping alongside people who do not have disabilities.
The majority of our staff members are people with disabilities; we share many of your dreams and struggles, because we have lived them ourselves. CDE can match you with experienced peers with disabilities for support reaching specific goals. Peer support may be provided individually or in groups.
