A Note From the Board of Directors, CEO & Management

The Central Arkansas Disability Services, Inc. Board of Directors strives to provide quality services for children and adults with barriers to independence. We believe Program Participants and their families should have the ability to contribute to their lives in any manner that will enhance and promote an atmosphere that creates inclusiveness, diversity, and participation.

We also believe that employment enriches and adds meaning to every life. The workplaces and communities are enhanced when they embrace differences.

This is why we make every effort to collaborate with the various community partners to widen our reach through an array of services. We visualize communities where people with disabilities receive quality services that empower them to lead good lives and continue living without limits.

We remain accountable to our Program Participants and each member of their support network to develop and maintain the highest standards for healthy living. Thank you for your continued support, and we look forward to making a connection with you and your family.



Central Arkansas Disability Services, Inc. leadership staff works hard every day to ensure that our service recipients live a life without limits. We are a dedicated group committed to providing compassionate care to those with disabilities.
