Becoming Independent is Creating the Future

Program Headquarters –

We are now launching a campaign to transform 1455 Corporate Center Parkway into BI’s Program Headquarters – a think tank for programs where innovative offerings are developed and experienced. After receiving national recognition and awards for our Passport to Independence, Discovery and Virtual Day Programs, we are excited to lean into this next innovative chapter. While our headquarters will be in Santa Rosa, our friends throughout the region will be offered transportation and encouraged to avail themselves of everything we have to offer both at our headquarters and in their local communities.

The Opportunities –

The space will be reminiscent of a post-secondary environment, equipped with state-of-the-art technology and up-to-date air filtration systems to ensure health and safety. It will be modern, airy and welcoming, and equipped with appropriate tools to support the individuals we serve in reaching their personal goals. It will include a 10,000 sq. ft. flexible program space that will offer opportunities for education, social connection, and vocational training that results in community based employment. Friends will be reunited in a vibrant setting that includes access to a large, beautiful outdoor garden.

On the heels of a year like no other, we are excited to be emerging with a clear vision of how best to build the future of effective and resilient services for our friends, neighbors and family members with intellectual and developmental disabilities. If there’s one thing that BI has proven over the past 54 years, it’s that just about anything is possible when you have a vision, the passion to move it forward, and a community of strong allies and generous supporters. We welcome you to join us on this journey!
