What we do

At the HIVE, we create opportunties for teens and adults with I/DD to learn, grow, connect, and experience new things. We are not care providers, we are more like a clubhouse. Want to know what all the buzz is about? Contact us for an appointment and you will see.
We're kinda awesome...

Why we do it

Because there is work to be done.

Because all people matter.

Because the status quo is not good enough.

  • Many people with I/DD can and want to work, volunteer, and participate in our community with little opportunity. We are determined to change that.
  •  61%   of parents of adult children with developmental disabilities don't have a plan for their child's future due to "lack of quality residential, employment and recreational services."
  • 67%   of students withI/DD who exit high school by maximum age or alternate diploma do not enter employment or postsecondary education.

Everything we do stems from our understanding that every person has value and purpose; that every person we serve is a multi-dimensional, complex, emotional human being that deserves every opportunity anyone else enjoys. We are determined to continue to improve and build our programming to best meet the needs of those we serve and their families.
