Center for Disability Services
175 South Williams Street
Newark, OH 43055

Center for Disability Services traces its history to a group of parents and concerned citizens who joined together to work to improve the lives of children and adults with developmental disabilities. Katie Carter was the visionary parent who, in 1949, encouraged other parents of children with disabilities to join together. She insisted that there must be an opportunity to train and educate these young people. This group of determined parents approached Newark City Schools for classroom space. Our founding families and supportive citizens, became incorporated in April of 1953 as the Council for Retarded Children. 

Today, we are known as Center for Disability Services. Though we have had name changes over the years, we remain dedicated to improving the lives of infants, children and adults with developmental disabilities, and supporting their families.  Center for Disability Services currently offers programs and services that support, educate and respect the choices of our neighbors with developmental disabilities.
