Admissions

Cedars serves adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities, starting (in most cases) at age 22 .

 

Admissions to Cedars programs includes an assessment process to determine if our services are a good fit for the individual.

When Cedars receives a referral or a request for services, a team of Cedars staff works to assess whether there is a match between the needs of the individual and the services available in Cedars programs.


This assessment process includes, but is not limited to, a review of a referral packet, personal meetings with families and individuals, and opportunities to visit Cedars programs for tours.


We often set up day and overnight visits to make sure that the fit is a good one for everyone. If it is determined that our services will meet your needs, we will work closely with families and new residents or day program participants to ensure a smooth transition.

Cedars offers a wide range of programs:

 

  • Cedars Fine Art Studios:  opportunities to develop skills as a professional artist in areas of jewelry making, painting, drawing, sculpture and mixed media projects;
