Welcome To Twin Palms Center for the Disabled

Anyone who is a parent or guardian of individuals with developmental delays is faced with the same issue:  What to do when their child becomes an adult? In 1968 a group of mothers arrived at this very predicament. Their loved ones had outgrown the public school system and services for adults with developmental delays were limited. None of these mothers could stand the thought of these remarkable individuals fading into the background of society and institutionalizing them was not an option. They knew that their loved ones deserved a fun and safe place that harbored healthy growth and development and that also allowed them to contribute to the community. It was at this moment that Twin Palms Center for the Disabled was born.
