"Furthering the Independence of Adults with Developmental Disabilities" Forty years ago a group of families with Developmentally Disabled relatives organized to form the Miami Adult Center for the Retarded; this organization later became known as MACtown. These early founders had the vision that Developmentally Disabled individuals could be cared for with compassion and provided with learning opportunities that could lead to furthering their independence. In 1973, MACtown opened the doors of its Intermediate Care Facility. The Developmentally Disabled residents are taught daily living and social skills necessary for coping in society and working in the community or attending Adult Day Training Programs. MACtown’s numerous accomplishments in these 40 years include: • 150 Productive, Developmentally Disabled Consumers • 4 Group Homes with 17 consumer residents • 81 Clients who find paying work in the Adult Day Training Center • 14 Supported Employment clients finding outsource work.
