 CLO''s mission is to make a meaningful difference in the lives of adults and children with developmental disabilities. CLO''s goal is to help persons with developmental disabilities achieve personally satisfying and fulfilling lifestyles in the community.  
CLO is nationally recognized for its innovative models of community support for adults and children with significant developmental disabilities, including its Family Teaching Model program, HomeLink Technologies, Children''s Network, and most recently, its Midnight Farm and Virtual Village Initiatives.
CLO will provide approximately $20 million dollars of budgeted services in 2010, and will manage an additional $6 million in services for a sister program that CLO is helping to develop to allow the closure of the oldest institution west of the Mississippi, in Silicon Valley, CA.  Since the late 80''s CLO has helped develop and mentor not-for-profit companies using its service models which collectively today provide a total of $30 million dollars of annual services across three different states.
