Liberty is a not-for-profit agency that began as a parent-run advocacy organization over 50 years ago. We have been operating programs for citizens with developmental and other disabilities since 1969. Like many agencies supporting the people with disabilities, Liberty has changed and matured over time — though the fundamental values that have made this organization strong remain constant.
Our organization has firmly embraced the concepts of person-centered supports, choice and self-determination. In 2005 we were accredited by the Council on Quality and Leadership in Supports for People with Disabilities (CQL). In 2009, the agency was reaccredited for 4 years, the longest accreditation period granted by CQL. We feel that the personal outcome-based standards developed by CQL offer a well-defined and recognized path to providing quality supports that are truly driven by consumer choice.
Liberty offers traditional day, vocational and residential programs and has made a concerted effort to incorporate best practices into our daily operations. Family services support programs, funded in part by the Liberty Foundation, offer individuals and families an array of no cost supports that are uncommon in our field.
