Since 1976, we’ve been helping adults and
children with developmental disabilities
reach their highest potential.
In the 1970s, Anne and Walter Grady were among a group of parents and guardians who were desperately seeking residential options for their adult children with development disabilities. Determined to avoid the conditions she witnessed inside state institutions, Anne became a driving force behind the effort. Originally named the Decem Center, the residence opened in 1982.
Two weeks before Anne passed away in 1988, the Center’s board of directors voted to honor her efforts by renaming it the Anne Grady Center. Today, the organization provides a vast array of services for adults and children with developmental disabilities, including intermediate care facilities, day programming, supported living, respite, and outpatient therapy.
