BASCA’s mission is to improve the quality of life for individuals with intellectual and developmental differences in Northeast Florida.

Who We Are

BASCA focuses on helping individuals with intellectual and developmental differences achieve a higher quality of life and a 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.


What We Do

BASCA has programs for adults with special needs including a day program for adults with developmental differences. In addition, we offer residential homes and vocational training for individuals

Life Skills Development

BASCA is proud of its innovative Life Skills Development Programs:
-Custom Creations with its adaptive safety equipment allows an individual to build saleable products such as benches, flower boxes, and recycling carts.
-Creative Learning Center & Fundamental Skills Center reinforces life and daily living skills, music, games, socialization, arts & crafts, and provides community outings.
-Garden Greenhouse is an exciting program for individuals to learn self-sufficiency, responsibility, and teamwork by growing vegetables each year.
