Adults with Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities

The Mentor Network's services for adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities

At The MENTOR Network, we believe that everyone is capable of reaching new heights and thriving in the community. Our services for adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities (I/DD) focus on personal choice while recognizing the specialized, and often complex, needs of the individuals we serve.

With a rich history as one of the first home- and community-based providers of services to people with intellectual and developmental disabilities in the country, The MENTOR Network and its partners have been at the forefront of the deinstitutionalization movement that took hold in the 1960s and 1970s. From Minnesota and California to New Jersey and Georgia—in collaboration with our public partners—we’ve helped individuals who have spent their lives in institutional settings, build rich, meaningful lives in the community of their choice.

Our continuum of services for adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities includes:

The Network’s continuum of personalized services emphasizes community integration and choice. Our community-based residential programs are tailored to fit the needs of each person who calls them home—from those requiring 24/7 care or medical assistance to individuals who are more independent. And our non-residential programs—including day and vocational services—offer countless opportunities for growth and increased independence.
