Welcome to The Progress Center
Where we promote Independence and Freedom of Choice for the Individuals We Serve
Our Mission Each person with a disability has a desire for a rich and varied life, including a physical, intellectual, emotional and spiritual dimension. Each person grows through their life experience and has the right to make his/her own life choices, including those that may involve risk. At The Progress Center our mission is to promote independence and freedom of choice for the individuals we serve, and help them discover their own dream for a meaningful life.
