Center for Social Change offers residential programs to children with developmental disabilities and anarray of support services in the program. Living in a home in the community with 24 hour support services enables children with developmental disabilities to be part of community life. We promote empowerment, self-esteem, personal growth, independence and productivity. CSC also supports families of children with developmental disabilities by advocacy, training and encouragement for reunification of their children. It strengthens family units and encourages family-based care to children with disability at their biological parents’ home. CSC enhances the well-being of children and youth by addressing their health, education, safety, economic issues, previous maltreatment and disability issues.
All children with or without developmental disabilities, behavioral issues, medically fragile, and autistic, are eligible for admission to CSC’s residential program. Referrals are made by Department of Social Services of all Counties of Maryland, and by DDA of Department of Health and Mental Hygiene. Contact the local DSS worker with eligibility questions, and Resource Coordinators of Service Coordination for children with autism spectrum disorder.
