Join the Diversity and Inclusion Movement! About PROVAIL
PROVAIL was founded in 1942 by parents of children with cerebral
palsy. They created some of the first community services for
individuals with cerebral palsy and other severe disabilities in
the area. Our mission is supporting people with disabilities
to fulfill their life choices. We help people decide how they
want to live their life in the community and then provide the
support services they need to act on those choices. We are one of
the state’s largest private, multi-service agencies dedicated
to meeting the needs of children and adults with all types of
disabilities. We are a lifelong resource to individuals with
disabilities and their families. Our services include:
Community-based residential services for adults with
developmental disabilities and traumatic brain injury;
Competitive supported employment helping adults and high school
students with disabilities find jobs in the community;
Clinical services including occupational/speech therapy and
innovative assistive technology solutions for communication and
