Zia Therapy Center was started as a grass roots effort in 1960, at a time long before there were community based programs for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities (I/DD). Zia began providing services for children, and as the children grew, so did our services. We now provide a myriad of services that support people with I/DD as they live, work and take part in our community.
We believe in and celebrate the rights of people with I/DD to have full inclusion and access to our community and we believe in their rights to choice, self-determination and self-direction.
Our staff must pass rigorous background checks that include nation-wide fingerprint criminal screening and pre-employment drug screening, to ensure we hire the best applicants. We also take training very seriously and each direct care provider is highly trained before providing services.
