East Side Day Academy has been serving children and adults with disabilities for over four years. We operate a day program, provide drop-in services, family supports and provide 24/7 care for some folks. As a small, privately owned business, our approach is family-oriented. The people we serve are family. Our amazing staff are family. The families we serve are family.
We've been recognized by Hamilton County DDS as a partner in Integration Services. We've been recognized by Department of Ohio Disabilities as being a leader in innovative integrative services. We believe EVERYONE has a place in the community!
Our top value is LOVE, which we believe everyone is worthy of and everyone deserves. Love extends in all directions- to the people we serve, to our staff people, to the families we help. Another value is QUALITY. We would rather provide GREAT supports for the people we serve, than do a lot of jobs. Another value is EQUALITY. We firmly believe we are all in this as equals and our effort is a group effort. Without great staff, amazing families, strong community partners, or the gifts individuals bring, our efforts would be for nothing.
