Leading the Way to Employment

Magnolia is pleased to offer a continuum of adult day opportunities for individuals who are 18 years of age and older and with developmental disabilities. We support adults in seeking challenging and varied opportunities to learn new skills, pursue individual interests, and attain lifelong goals and dreams.


Support our Latest Project: The Hal Harries Musical Garden

The garden, featuring an accessible walkway, family/visitor seating area and outdoor musical instruments, will be a wonderful addition to Magnolia Community Services’ holistic approach to serving adults with developmental disabilities.
