Our history

Progressive Healthcare Providers is a non-profit organization has cared for individuals with intellectual disabilities since 1990. Today we provide a stable, loving environment for more than 400 individuals in Alabama and Florida.

We employ professional staff, who are carefully screened and trained in our unique methods that have been proven and refined over two decades.

Through our experiences, we’ve honed our methods and practices so we offer each resident a unique opportunity to acquire skills, experiences, employment and build relationships to the maximum potential. And, we’ve learned maximum can be a lot more than previously thought.

Some of our individuals come to us without ever having experienced much individuality or self-determination. When they experience our approach, they blossom. And that inspires us all.

We’re advocates.

Individuals we serve utilize a variety of public resources. We assist them in obtaining the medical care and services they require. They need friends and a social life in the communities where they live. They need employment that pays a fair wage.

These opportunities don’t just pop up out of nowhere. We have to create them. And that means we have to continually advocate.

  • We advocate for parents and legal guardians as they navigate the process to eligibility and placement.
  • We advocate to get local businesses to employ our residents.
  • We advocate with the state to make sure they get services.
  • We advocate with community leaders so they’re welcomed as neighbors.

And, every day, our staff advocate for residents to make sure they get the individual attention, support, guidance, nurturing, instruction and praise to live their best lives.
