Courtney’s House Programs
Inclusion; finding & sharing one’s strengths; accepting, and even celebrating, the qualities that make us unique. These goals are at the heart of our mission and programs at Courtney’s House. As a nonprofit resource center for adults with developmental disabilities, we offer social, vocational and enrichment opportunities aimed at helping each individual reach their fullest potential.
