ABOUT US: Aid to the Developmentally Disabled is a nonprofit 5013(c) agency established in 1980 by family members who were concerned about the physical and emotional decline of patients compelled to live in crowded institutions.  These family members believed that appropriate treatment and training in a warm, homelike environment would enhance their physical and emotional growth.  We service a 24/7 operation in 30 residential homes throughout the north and south forks of eastern Long Island with over 200 individuals.  ADD’s mission is to create a supportive environment whereby people with a range of abilities are actively encouraged to develop an direct services that recognize their unique desires, ambitions, values and abilities.
