A private non-profit organization serving people with disabilities
A Word from our CEO
Development Homes Inc. is at an exciting juncture in our 38 year history of providing quality services for people with intellectual disabilities in our community. More than ever, we have committed our organization’s efforts to giving back to our community in a reciprocal manner, in order to make this a better place to live for all!
Our vision statement articulates the intent of “mutual reciprocity” with the community. Making this come alive is the challenge and test as we go forward. So what do we mean by mutual reciprocity? In part, it involves dedicating employee time and effort to participation in an array of community-wide efforts. Development Homes believes strongly enough in this intent that individual employees are given up to 12 hours a year of paid work time to give back to our community by volunteering. For example, some staff deliver Meals on Wheels and many are involved in Relay for Life.
We also encourage and promote staff involvement in a plethora of “systems” advocacy efforts in Grand Forks and at the state and regional levels. The statewide efforts include representation on the Governor’s Task Force on Autism, the Employment First Task Force, and the ND Association of Community Providers.
