We invite you to explore the many day programs and community services available at Developmental Enrichment Centers (DEC), a faith-based, non-profit organization dedicated to serving developmentally disabled and medically fragile individuals in Arizona. DEC provides a variety of programs for children, adults, and seniors who need assistance in learning basic life skills, have physical care needs, and who are looking for opportunities to meet new friends and explore their local community. As our clients grow, volunteer and job skill opportunities are explored. We also offer support services outside of our training programs, including: respite care, habilitation, attendant care, and family support.
Our programs provide specialized sensory-motor, cognitive, and communicative development, as well as social interaction and behavioral training. Personalized goals and skill sets are developed and expanded upon by activities, classes, and community outings. For our young clients, we also provide respite services that accommodate early release and special school holidays.
Our experienced staff supports each client’s individual growth and goals in a safe and loving environment, working in close coordination with the primary caregiver.
All of our center-based programs provide pickup and drop-off transportation services for those individuals residing at home. These fully equipped, wheelchair-accessible vans are also utilized for weekly outings into the community. In addition to our center-based programs, DEC offers in-home habilitation, attendant care, and respite services to provide relief to primary caregivers. These services are provided on a prescheduled basis throughout the week and on weekends as needed.
We encourage you to contact us today for a personal tour of our center and to find out how DEC can enrich the special individual in your life
