The Center for Pursuit is proud of our tremendous progress in supporting those with intellectual and developmental disabilities since 1950. Our intellectual disability programs in Houston, TX, focus on three main pillars to help our community succeed in life and continually improve:

  1. Choice: What does success mean to you?
  2. Growth: Evolve while accomplishing your goals!
  3. Independence: Enable the highest possible level of self-sufficiency.

Our mission is to enable those with IDD to imagine and realize a future that offers true fulfillment. We could not have helped so many beautiful souls with IDD if not for generous donors throughout our history!

A Helping Hand: Houston IDD Support Organization

Residents and community members, alike, come to Center for Pursuit for helpful Houston developmental disability services that improve people’s skill sets. It’s amazing to think how far we’ve come since the organization’s inception in 1950. That was a time when having a developmental disability could make you an outcast – totally cut off from society, or, worse… locked away in a sterile, loveless institution.

But that’s ancient history, now, as far as we’re concerned. There’s tremendous power and potential in every person who walks through our doors! You can actually “meet” some of the residents and community members and see how their lives have been transformed for the better. They experience a sense of satisfaction in learning to do a job well, being a productive member of their community, or simply learning to function and communicate more effectively. That’s all the reward we could ever ask for.
