Imagine-logoIn July of 2016, after months of planning and research, three organizations from across the state came together to create Imagine the Possibilities, Inc. with the mission of Individual Achievement. These three organizations (DAC, Inc., Imagine the Possibilities, Inc., and Midwest Opportunities, Inc.) wanted to be proactive and set a solid foundation for services for years to come in order to effectively work with the new implementation of Managed Care that was now overseeing funding for our services. In October of 2016, Imagine the Possibilities Inc. added another strong partner to the fold – G and G Living Centers, Inc.

Imagine The Possibilities is committed to providing quality Community-based Services to people with disabilities. People served will be assured individually designed services that enhance capabilities in environments that tolerate only dignity and respect for all. Our primary focus is to enhance each person’s quality of life through “Individual Achievement”.

NEIAAA accomplishes this in many ways--one of which is funding transportation offered by the RTA. Without the cooperation of community partners, our older area citizens would have far fewer services and programs available to assist them.
