I have been working with adults with developmental disabilities throughout my entire life, and never before have I met a more accommodating, caring group. The staff, residents, volunteers, and visitors truly create a familial environment, while still promoting independence and freedom. Probably the best work place I've ever experienced.
Hillside House is unique within our community as an institution providing a joyful and enabling living environment for people with developmental disabilities. Our residents are not here becasue of any bad choices they have made in their lives, but because they were born with disabilities that require assistance far above and beyond those of most people. Hillside House abundantly fulfills its "tag line": "Fostering Abilities, Creating Community."

As a board member of Hillside House for the last 5 years I have witnessed first hand the consistent care, love and support that Hillside House provides to their residents. I have been impressed with the extensive experience and expertise of the staff of this organization, their careful stewardship of the organization and their strong vision for the future. I personally participate in the Hillside House program because I believe that the master plan that they are working on for integrated housing for the residents, neighbors and people in need of affordable housing is groundbreaking and will lead the nation in how to support the lives of the developmentally disabled in the 21st century.
