People With Disabilities

BCFS empowers people with disabilities to lead lives of meaningful service, and ensures communities have adequate plans, resources and infrastructure in place to care for vulnerable populations in times of disaster.

BCFS' operates residential and day programs for adults with mild to moderate intellectual disabilities that empower residents to live fulfilling lives, develop their unique talents and build meaningful relationships. Support services at these facilities offer residents active, healthy and social lifestyles as well as counseling, healthcare, and community service opportunities.

Our Emergency Management Division is the national leader in integrating individuals with disabilities, functional and access needs into the emergency programs of cities, states and jurisdictions. BCFS' EMD works closely with jurisdictions, offering trainings, exercises and consultation to identify and fill gaps in care for vulnerable populations before emergencies happen.
