Welcome to Our website

Monarch is a nonprofit organization that supports thousands of people statewide with intellectual and developmental disabilities, mental illness, and substance use disorders.

The agency provides services and supports to people of all ages, skill levels, and backgrounds. We do not make decisions for the people we support. Monarch professionals, like our behavioral health services counselors and direct support professionals, will work with individuals to discover their interests and help them to identify their place in the community where they live.
