CDS Monarch, a CDS Life Transitions company, began with a group of parents whose goal was to ensure quality services would always be available for their children, no matter their ages. These parents joined together to form Continuing Developmental Services, Inc. (CDS), a non-for-profit, private organization, now known as CDS Monarch.
CDS Monarch was incorporated in 1977 and opened its first community residence in August of 1978. Today, CDS Monarch fulfills transitional and employment needs of more than 1,700 people with developmental disabilities and their families. CDS Monarch is guided by the belief that everyone deserves the opportunity to lead a productive, fulfilling life with quality and choice of services.
