For more than six decades, The Center has empowered individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities (I/DD) to live meaningful, dignified lives filled with opportunity. Through innovative programs and services in areas like employment training, community living, and day habilitation, we help our clients develop the skills and tools necessary to grow as individuals and participate fully in their community. Always growing and changing, The Center currently serves over 450 adults with I/DD in the Houston area. We tailor the support we provide to the varied needs of the people and families we serve. Each day, in each program, we witness breakthroughs, tender moments, and everyday victories that affirm our steadfast commitment to our guiding principles of choice, growth, and personal independence, and the humanity within us all.


We empower our clients to decide what success means to them, providing encouragement and guidance as they set their own goals and steer their own destinies.


We support our clients as they evolve as individuals, provide the tools for them to learn and accomplish their goals, and open doors to new experiences.


We respect our clients’ capabilities while providing individualized support to enable the highest possible level of self-sufficiency.
