Celebrating the abilities and talents of individuals with disabilities and Autism.

The Adult Training Facility (ATF), with program locations in Washington and Waynesburg, is an individualized teaching and training program whose primary goal is to support adults with Intellectual Disabilities and Autism to live a meaningful life. Licensed by the Department of Human Services, the program operates within the community and in the facility, which includes equipment and supplies to enhance the broad options of activities provided to each individual.

Separate community vocational and volunteer training programs are also available that provide real hands-on vocational and social skills training.

At the Washington County site, a separate program operates within the Adult Training Facility (ATF), for individuals aged 60 years of age and older. The Older Adult Daily Living Center (OADLC) provides day services to adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities. This program is licensed by the Pennsylvania Department of Aging and focuses on enabling seniors to fully participate in, enjoy and enhance their retirement.
