Welcome to the Utah State Developmental Center. The Utah State Developmental Center is a state operated Intermediate Care Facility for people with Intellectual Disabilities (ICF/ID). It operates under the direction of the Utah Department of Human Services, Division of Services for People With Disabilities.
The Developmental Center offers 24 hour supervised residential and day training/employment services as well as community outreach services. Approximately 235 individuals reside at the Developmental Center. People with disabilities receive a variety of professionally driven supports depending on their individual needs. The Developmental Center's mission is to serve as "a statewide resource center for people with disabilities while promoting opportunity through choice and outcome based support."
Family members and friends are encouraged to visit. Regular visiting hours vary between the different buildings and according to the day of the week, weekend or holiday. To arrange for a visit, please contact the Social Worker, QMRP, or the building staff in advance of your visit. For a tour of our facility contact Josette Harding at (801) 763-4000 or email at email@example.com.
Volunteer involvement accomplishes a dual role at Utah State Develpmental Center. First, it helps our individuals feel accepted by the community and helps them interact socially. Secondly, community involvement is a teaching experience to help educate the community about developmental disabilities and the programs offered at USDC. For questions about volunteering please call Sherilyn Kent at (801) 763-4008.

Utah State Developmental Center Survey
In September 2011, Palmer DePaulis, Executive Director, Department of Human Services, chartered a Strategic Planning Committee to develop recommendations for the future direction and mission of the Utah Developmental Center (USDC). The Committee was composed of individuals representing various constituencies of the disability community. They worked diligently to tackle difficult issues and developed with a set of comprehensive and exciting draft recommendations.
Your feedback on the draft recommendations is needed.
