A Community of Friendship and Acceptance
Located in Glendale, Arizona, Developmental Enrichment Centers (DEC) provides comprehensive life skills training and personal care services to children and adults with developmental disabilities. We invite you to stop by and visit our facility or give us a call at (602) 993-5153 to arrange for a program tour.
DEC also provides in-home care with respite services that give relief to the primary caregiver and habilitation services that expand the life-skills training provided in our day programs. Take a few moments to check-out the rest of our site and learn more about our history, visit the photo gallery, or perhaps explore the possibility of partnering with us on behalf of the disabled.
