About Monarch

Monarch is a non-profit organization that supports thousands of people statewide with intellectual and developmental disabilities, mental illness, and substance use disorders. As a trauma-informed company, we provide 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.

About Monarch’s Mission, Vision and Values

 The caring professionals at Monarch work diligently to provide a safe and nurturing, trauma-informed environment for each person. Staff provide individualized services for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities and mental illnesses as well as support and counseling for those with substance use challenges.

Relationships are a priority.

We involve the people we serve in the process of selecting those who will work with them or live with them. We understand that the best service is provided within a positive relationship. Staff tell us they love their jobs – maybe that’s why so many have been with Monarch for decades. At Monarch, our dream is to see the people we support live their dreams. We are here to help individuals achieve their goals and dreams. We work to make those dreams real, whatever it takes.
