History

 

IAC was formed in 1977 in response to the horrors revealed at the Willowbrook facility. A small group of 30 non-profit agencies, mostly founded and operated by parents of children with developmental disabilities, banded together in an Inter-Agency Council to work with government to design, develop and operate a new, ground-breaking service system. While excited by the prospect of creating a community-based network of residences to replace the large institutions, the Council was worried that the needs of those living at home, who had never entered an institution, would take a backseat to the court-mandated services for those leaving institutions. IAC was born from the need to meet that challenge.
