Progressive Community Services provides tools and resources to nearly 1024 people with developmental disabilities and their families throughout Buchanan County each year. We do this through one on one Support Coordination, Family Navigation, affordable HUD housing and community partnership. Additionally, seven area agencies receive funding through tax revenues towards providing supports and resources for people with I/DD. Together we are creating lasting social change in Buchanan County.
In 2021, Progressive Community Services supported 541 individuals through Support Coordination, 473 families through Family Navigation, 32 people through HUD housing, and provided $1,136,659.00 back into our community through our contractual provider agencies and initiatives.
