Adelante is the Spanish word for “forward”, which describes our philosophy. We are working to improve our community and especially the lives of people with disabilities and seniors. Adelante helps people push past social barriers and stereotypes, set goals, and move forward in their lives.


Adelante is also known for moving forward through innovation and growth. Our organization began in 1978 with just 6 clients, all of whom were men with autism. Today, we have a positive impact on over 65,000 people a year including people with a variety of disabilities, the elderly, and disadvantaged populations, too.

In all that we do, Adelante strives to be a community resource.
