Short report on company website
Our past has prepared us. In 1947, a group of Baltimore parents decided they could not accept the lack of educational opportunities for their children who had mental retardation. They founded a school, based on their belief that each child had the right to reach the highest possible level of functioning. They borrowed space in a church, and they called their vision The School of the Chimes after the message of hope they heard in the church bells. This was the first school in Maryland for children with moderate mental retardation. And it was the first in a long string of successes for Chimes. Over half a century later, Chimes has expanded to an international multiservice agency delivering a wide range of programs, services and supports for nearly 10,000 people of all ages and many levels of ability. Our Family of Services include agencies in six states, the District of Columbia, and Israel assisting people with disabilities including mental retardation, mental illness and other disabilities by offering the following: • Educational Services • Employment • Residential Services • Medical Day Habilitation • Supported Living Services • Clinical Services • Senior Living Services • Substance Abuse Services • Respite Assistance • Prevention and Education Programs • Vocational Evaluation • Vocational Training • Psycho-Social Programs • Work Opportunities • Psychiatric Clinics • Placement Assistance
