Welcome to the DC Coalition of Disability Service Providers

The DC Coalition of Disability Service Providers is a professional organization that provides support and services, consistent with choice, to people with intellectual and other disabilities.  The Coalition advocates for the most promising practices in the industry and serves its members by ensuring continuing progress toward greater quality of life for those with intellectual disabilities and other disabilities who reside in and around the greater Washington, D.C. area.

The DC Coalition was founded in the early 1970’s and currently represents 54 members, which in turn support over 2,000 persons with intellectual and developmental disabilities and employ over 4,500 staff, many of whom are residents of the District of Columbia. The Coalition members provide residential, day, employment, in-home and other waiver services and supports to the citizens from the District, assisting these residents in becoming more connected to our community.

We hope that you will join the DC Coalition in sharing its vision for a more connected community that advocates on behalf of its members and those persons receiving supports.
