Reaching Out To Serve

Welcome

 
Thank you for visiting the Community Development Center (CDC) website. Our agency provides a comprehensive, Early Intervention program to meet the needs of developmentally challenged children, birth to three years of age.
 
A Family Support program provides flexible support to households with a developmentally challenged member.
 
The Independent Support Coordination component manages services of persons with developmental disabilities served in the Medicaid Waiver. The service areas of the program include educational, developmental, medical and living coordination.
 
In addition to our traditional programs, we continue to explore avenues to increase the reach of our mission to the communities in which we serve. 

mission statement

Providing supports and services to children, families and individuals with disabilities while addressing the health and well-being of all persons in the communities in which we serve. 

 

impact statement
The agency annually touches the lives of over 850 families who have a developmentally challenged member. Licensed child care providers receive over 1800 hours of training for 725 staff. Lives are changed and futures are brighter through the commitment and services of 55 CDC staff members.

partnerships

Throughout the service history of the CDC, partnerships have been established both in professional and humanitarian relations. The agency partners with major departments in the Tennessee government and service system. Contracts are held with the Department of Education, Tennessee Early Intervention System (TEIS), Department of Human Services, Department of Finance and Administration, and the Division of Intellectual Disabilities Services.
 
Regional and local partnerships include interagency collaboration, health councils, adult provider agencies which serve intellectually and developmentally challenged adults, the Tennessee Vocational Rehabilitation System, the Tennessee Technology Centers, Columbia and Motlow State Community Colleges, the South Central local Interagency Coordination Council, the community of faith, local corporations, educational institutions, the Tennessee Agricultural centers, University of Tennessee Nutritional Program and United Ways.
 
CDC governing bodies
 
All programs are overseen by local Advisory Boards with a variety of professionals, consumers, and minority representatives. These boards are responsible for the financial health and viability of the programs and ensure local voices are part of decision making.
 
Advisory Boards report to the CDC Governing Board. The boards ensure financial stability through community funding and support from United Way, civic clubs, the community of faith, local governments and individual contributors.
 
In 2006 the agency formed the CDC Foundation which addresses the long-term viability of the agency and the strategic funding necessary to ensure the mission of the agency is implemented.
