Chimes was founded in 1947 as a school for five children with moderate intellectual disabilities whose parents rejected the then prevailing wisdom that their children would never achieve meaningful or productive lives. From those modest beginnings, Chimes has grown into one of the industry’s largest providers of services and supports for people with barriers to independent living. Today, Chimes Family Services offers a wide range of programming, including day habilitation, residential, educational, vocational, employment, and behavioral health services and supports for nearly 20,000 individuals annually in six Mid-Atlantic States. Chimes is also closely affiliated with Chimes Israel through Board representation, and assistance with program design and funding. Chimes distinguishes itself from other disability service providers through its unique emphasis on client centered, evidence based program design.
Chimes has been making a positive difference in the lives of the individuals we serve for more than 70 years. We see potential in everyone, and we’ve proven adept at helping our individuals achieve that potential.
