Who We Are
Located in Abilene, Texas,
(DRI), began in 1987 with the wish of a
young man who wanted a place to live, work and play with his friends. In fact, our logo is an artist’s
rendering of what he drew in the dirt with a stick when he illustrated with his heart what his words
could not say.
From that wish to today, the mission of DRI has been to provide exceptional care and contented lives to intellectually challenged adults in a Christian environment. Our organization has grown to a 170 acre main campus, including seven group homes and a thriving vocational center. In addition, we recently completed a 17,000 square foot multi-purpose activity center that will further expand our ability to provide vocational as well as recreational programs for our “Folks” here.
Who We Help
Disability Resources, Incorporated (DRI) was founded in 1987 to offer residential care and vocational
training to adults with developmental disabilities. Adults at least 18 years old, with a diagnosis of
developmental disability or related condition, are eligible to participate in either our full-time resident
program or our day-only vocational training and activities program. We have “Folks” residing and
working at DRI who are faced with developmental challenges such as Down Syndrome, autism, cerebral
palsy, head injury, and mild mental retardation. If you know someone who could benefit from all that
DRI has to offer, please call for more information…or better yet, come for a visit.
How We Help
Disability Resources, Incorporated (DRI), a nonprofit agency, is dedicated to creating a uniquely
nurturing community for adults with developmental disabilities. Since 1987, DRI has provided
residential care, vocational training, and recreation activities to this underserved population. Whether
enrolled in our full-time resident program or our day-only vocational training and activities program,
our “Folks” are cared for with the utmost respect and love. Our staff is committed to providing
innovative opportunities for full and meaningful participation in all aspects of life.
