Who We Are
AAPPD is a 501(c) 4 statewide consortium of providers licensed to deliver services to individuals with physical and developmental disabilities. For over 35 years, AAPPD has supported and advocated for its 110+ member organizations and the clients they serve. Our members strive to help adults and children with disabilities contribute to and remain a part of their communities. In addition, member organizations are continually seeking ways to improve programs and services for individuals with disabilities and their families.
AAPPD has a diverse group of members that provide a wide variety of services in urban and rural areas including residential homes, in-home support, life skills training, employment services, early intervention and children’s services, transportation, and more. AAPPD’s member organizations represent about 75% of all clients served through the Arizona Department of Economic Security/ Department of Developmental Disabilities (DES/DDD) – that’s over 15,000 adults and children!
