Narrative

TILL is committed to working with individuals and their families to create meaningful lives, connected to one’s community and all that it has to offer.

We realize this mission through individualized residential, vocational, therapeutic, and support service opportunities. We grow, learn and change together with the individuals and families we support. Central to all of our services is the recognition of each person’s right to self-expression and self-determination in managing their life.

Our vision is to create partnerships with people seeking services, with families and caregivers, advocacy groups, policy makers and other service providers; to respect the creative, entrepreneurial and professional talents of our staff through teamwork; to recognize the dignity and rights of those requesting services; to acknowledge the value and expertise of the community and caregivers; and to provide leadership in the development of community services.

We have stayed true to our mission by developing and providing community based services for individuals with disabilities. We do so by capitalizing on people's abilities rather than their disabilities and matching those abilities to the needs and interests of the communities in which they live. We operate day and residential services in 35 cities and towns in Massachusetts. In addition, we provide family support, behavioral health, and autism services in a wide variety of locations throughout MA.

TILL has contracts with various EOHHS agencies including DDS, MRC and SHIP, MCB, DMH. We are a Mass Health provider.
