IN: SAN FRANCISCO is approaching its 3rd year of serving persons with intellectual developmental disabilities (IDD) and we have come a long way. This coming year will see our expansion to the East Bay where services for persons with IDD are much needed to keep up with the growing population in the bay area. It will also see a major focus on employment services in addition to the day services and Independent Living Skills (ILS) that we currently offer.
As we all brace ourselves and try to find a new normal that will foster health, safety and individual growth we will continue to evaluate and progress in the way we serve our participants utilizing technology and alternative modes of communication.
One thing that will not change is that we are the agency that treats everyone with respect. Our staff, stakeholders and especially our participants. We will continue to be a work in progress and our experienced staff and leadership will adapt and grow to meet the needs of our participants and whatever unexpected challenges are presented to us.
Please feel free to contact me for further information about IN: SAN FRANCISCO.
