Who We Are
CENTS is a diverse group of caring individuals dedicated to providing support and guidance to those with intellectual and developmental disabilities, and their caregivers.
Break down the barriers between those in need and the services that exist for their benefit, while destigmatizing intellectual and developmental disabilities and the act of asking for help.
While key services can be found locally, some individuals with special needs, and their caregivers, cannot afford them. Others are unable to receive help because the services they need do not provide support for non-English speakers. Some caregivers fail to act in the face of cultural stigma.
CENTS aims to make local services more accessible to those who need them through education and advocacy. Our bilingual staff offers guidance wherever it is needed – both in the community and on an individual basis – with individuals whose unique situations require special one-on-one attention.
