ABOUT US


Daybreak Independent Services Inc. is committed to developing and providing an integrated comprehensive system of services for adults with a wide range of Developmental Disabilities.

These services are designed to strengthen the abilities of our individuals, as well as to improve and expand the opportunities for independence so that adults with disabilities may live with dignity as fully functioning, participating and contributing members of our community.

OUR HISTORY


"Six years ago, I was thinking how to close the gap from training Day Habilitation skills and putting into real life experience. My vision was in opening a Day Habilitation Program that offers a way, to gain skills and confidence and allow them to incorporate a real work place. i.e. DBIS Laundromat. In 2010, Daybreak Independent Services opened its door for individuals with developmental disabilities, to learn and apply their skills in a laundromat setting."
