Oakdale is a gracious residential setting for adults with behavioral health and developmental disabilities. We are a coeducational program that offers year-round, seven-days-a-week services as well as support and guidance in community living, oversight of medical needs and direction in occupational and volunteer pursuits. We offer a range of residential services for those in need of long term placement or short term placement, and those who are able to transition into independent, but supported living.

Our residential services focus on working with each individual in a very tailored manner to develop and maintain the skills needed to grow and begin taking ownership over all the aspect's of one's own life. Our services include money management, home maintenance, personal care/health care, nutrition education, relationship/skill building, job readiness assessment/skills training and individualized service/treatment plans.

By strengthening exisiting competencies while emphasizing independence and self direction, we strive for each person to see their challenges as an aspect of their being, not as a defining characteristic. We provide pathways to meaningful and productive community participation, employment/volunteerism, increased awareness and responsibility for personal health, wellness, safety and growth, and the development of meaningful relationships with friends, familly and others.

Our mission is to collaborate with our residents and their families with one goal in mind: each individual reaching his or her own potential in every aspect of their lives.
