Developmental Disability Services

Albertina Kerr provides a wide range of services designed to support individuals with developmental disabilities, empowering them to lead fuller, self-determined lives. The people we serve face mental and physical disabilities resulting in impairments to daily functioning and include diagnoses such as Down syndrome, autism, cerebral palsy, and epilepsy. If you or someone you know needs help with a family member with a developmental disability, please call Albertina Kerr at 503-239-8101.

Our values form the foundation from which decisions are made. In all of our programs, we ensure:

Focus on the Individual
Every individual has equal value and is treated with dignity and respect.  We develop person-centered services in the least restrictive environment possible. 

 

Enhance Quality of Life

Services are primarily community-based and promote opportunities for community integration and meaningful employment. 

 

Growth Opportunities

We maintain an environment where people with disabilities can develop social networks outside of the disabled community.

 

Diversity

Service plans reflect the diversity and cultural backgrounds of the people who receive our services.

 

Integrity

High ethical standards and integrity are adhered to by the organization and are continuously applied to our daily work.

 

Community-Based

We partner with the people we serve, families and the community to achieve our vision and mission. 

 

Advocacy

We strongly advocate for the rights and needs of the people we serve, educating the community and political decision makers about the challenges they face.
