The Trudeau Center has been a Warwick landmark since the early 1960's. We were born out of a necessity and belief that people with disabilities should be allowed full citizenship within their own communities. Arthur & Evelyn Trudeau along with a legion of supporters tirelessly sought to create services such as special education, recreation, and vocational training.
Today our comprehensive services include Early Intervention, Pathways Strategic Teaching Center's school for children with autism, enhancement of daily living skills and community participation through Community Support Services & Home Based Children Services, assorted work opportunities through Day Habilitation & Supported Employment, choices of where to live in Residential & Community Living, Recreation & Leisure Services, & Respite and Family Support ensure our commitment to family involvement & participation.
Our mission is to promote an enhanced quality of life for individuals with developmental disabilities.
We envision a diverse community where all people are valued, safe, and treated with dignity, respect, and equality. In this community, all people have access to resources to enable them to lead productive lives; have opportunities to learn, grow, and achieve; and have opportunities for self-expression. In this community, there is mutual responsibility between the community and the individual; all contribute to the common good and each individual's potential is realized.
We seek to serve the community with compassion and respect, offering efficient, effective, and affordable services. We welcome and actively seek out preferences and information from our participants concerning their needs. To achieve the Agency's vision, we believe that we must be accessible and responsive to the diverse people we serve.
