Nurture. Enrich. Thrive.

This campaign will enable CDD to begin the move from group homes to ISL homes — nurturing individuals with developmental disabilities, enriching their living environments, allowing them to thrive and achieve their highest potential.

Our goal is to construct 7 ISL homes, of which 3 are medically intensive.
To support these homes, an endowment will provide long-term funds for enhanced operations. A program segment will support the needs of residents and nursing initiatives to promote their wellbeing.

Leaving a Legacy

In-Kind Donations

The contributions of goods or services can go a long way toward supporting the CDD mission. From time to time the individuals we serve have needs beyond their means. Sometimes individuals move-in with nothing but the clothes on their back. Starting a new apartment or ISL home takes a lot of resources. You can help by passing along useful items you no longer need or want. Your donation not only helps a good cause but also promotes recycling. We are looking for some of the following items: furniture, dishes, cookware, silverware, home décor, kitchen utensils, dish soap, personal hygiene products, paper towels, gift cards, vacations.

Gifts in Honor or in Memory of Someone Special

Memorial and Honorarium gifts are a special way to keep your loved one’s memory and legacy alive. Be it family, friends, teachers, or co-workers, these touching gifts provide an opportunity to remember or pay tribute to individuals as well as recognize special occasions such as birthdays, anniversaries, retirements or holidays. Memorial and Honor gifts offer a unique way to express your feelings to others, and directly benefit the individuals served at CDD. The family of those being remembered or the individual being honored will receive a special notification identifying the donor without specifying the gift amount.

To learn more about Memorial and Honorarium gifts, please call our office at (816) 531-0045.
