The needs of people with developmental disabilities are just as unique and individualized as yours and mine. With 300+ dedicated employees, we are able to provide exactly what each person needs in order to allow them to live the fullest life possible. Whether they need us to stop in to help them pay their bills or if they need 24-hour assistance, Toward Independence is there for them. The individuals that we serve in their homes truly become part of the Toward Independence family.




We have two conveniently located Creative Community Connections. Each location provides an array of options to ensure that the goals of those that attend our programs are being reached and exceeded. We have established partnerships with many local companies, agencies, and individuals that provide many unique experiences for our attendees. Whether it is learning restaurant skills, boosting technology knowledge, volunteering to love animals or any other passions, We are dedicated to connecting with our community.


Transportation is a challenge for many people with developmental disabilities. We currently provide high-quality transportation across five counties in Ohio. Our vehicles are clean, safe, modern and wheelchair accessible. With over 13 vehicles in our fleet, we are able to provide reliable, punctual and appropriate transportation. If there is a need for a ride to work, a single event, or have a set routine, we have an open seat.
