About Us

The solution to a need became reality in September 1971 with six clients. They met in the basement of the United Methodist Church. Our service operation has now grown to six acres in the town of Mountain Home, Arkansas. Baxter Day Service Center now consists of a main office/development facility of 4,800 square feet and a sub-contract warehouse of 33,000 square feet where most work activities take place. We offer both terminal and transitional recognized programs of habilitation for our handicapped clients.

Baxter Day Service Center is a non-profit corporation, financially supported by the Arkansas Department of Human Services -- DDS, Medicaid, sub-contracts, contributions, and bequests/wills. All contributions are tax deductible and will help to provide quality programs and services to the handicapped.

Baxter Day Service Center is under the jurisdiction of an independent Board of Directors made up of local business people and other qualified individuals, who exercise supervision and control of all Center policies.

Our Philosophy and Our Mission

The purpose of Baxter Day Service Center is to provide developmentally disabled individuals with experiences which will enable them to develop to their maximum mental, physical, and emotional potential -- to help them achieve the highest degree of independence. An awareness and acknowledgement of individual needs of the developmentally disabled person is basic to the philosophy of Baxter Day Service Center and steps are taken to meet these individual needs.

    I.  A support team is provided by the Center to assess and determine the needs of the individual, who is then encouraged to achieve his maximum potential regardless of his mental ability, educational achievement, economic or ethnic background.

    II.  Other supports, such as transportation and counseling, are provided to assist in meeting the individual's needs in the manner most suitable for him or her as an individual striving to become more integrated into the community.
