Project Description

The Center

The Center of Pursuit is a nonprofit United Way agency that empowers individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities to live meaningful, dignified live.

The Center’s humble origins began in 1950 when a small group of parents of children with intellectual disabilities came together to share their concerns and hopes for their children’s future. Driven by the conviction that their children could live meaningful, rewarding lives with proper support and care, the parents combined resources to form The Center, planting a visionary seed at a time when institutionalization and isolation were the norm.
