In 1964, Pioneer Occupational Center formed to assist adults with disabilities in work and social communications skills. It would be great to see those first employees from the organization’s early days, including former Governor Bob Graham (1979-1987), who worked at the facility for one of his well-known, popular Work Days.
As the years evolved and more and more residents became aware of what is today Helping People Succeed, the organization expanded its programs to Baby Steps, Healthy Families, BRAIN (), Music and Movement, Employment Options, Community Connections and Behavioral Health Services. Today, Helping People Succeed has expanded its programs to include elementary, middle and high school students with autism spectrum disorder.
