Who We Are

BASCA focuses on helping individuals with intellectual and developmental differences achieve a higher quality of life and sense of belonging. The organization was started by parents who were looking for programs that concentrated on their special needs children’s abilities. The desire was to have programs and services that offer each individual opportunities to learn how to lead a life that makes them feel complete. We build not just skills, but the confidence to go out into the job market, into the community, meet people, and help others by volunteering.
