Our History

Formerly known as Independent Living for Adults with Special Needs, the organization opened its residential program on Claremont Street in Worcester in early 1972. By 1984, the organization offered placement services through its Shared Living Program. Today, My Choice Programs has experienced tremendous growth by developing a network of high-quality services designed to enable individuals with an Intellectual disability, acquired brain injury or autism, to live independently and productively in their community.

Our Mission

My Choice Programs provides quality services that enable individuals to live independently in the least restrictive environment. We provide professional coaching for individuals with intellectual disabilities, acquired brain injuries, or who are on the autism spectrum, so that they can make meaningful decisions, speak out for themselves and others, take risks, generate ideas and expand their thinking about their life, needs and services.

My Choice Programs adheres to a strict ethical duty to provide cost effective services delivered by well-trained, qualified staff. Our organization values the ethnic, religious, and cultural diversity of each individual.


Our Vision

With the coaching and support that we provide, individuals will identify their skills and interests so that with hard work, determination and courage, they will realize their potential and live the life they choose and desire.

At our core, we believe in the inherent value of all individuals and seek to serve our community with a commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion. We believe that every person deserves equal access to resources, opportunities, and support, regardless of their race ethnicity, gender identity, sexual orientation, religion, ability, or socio-economic status.
