Employees at AEDD:
Annual Fundraising and Donation Income:
Community Life Services (CLS) consists of two small Intermediate Care Facilities managed by AEDD. These facilities provide excellent 24-hour services to meet individual needs through a professional and clinical staff.
Direct care staff plays a very important role in the active treatment provided by the facilities. Our members and staff participate in entertaining and rewarding activities such as playing baseball on Little Rock’s Miracle League Field, attending the annual AEDD Prom and participating in the yearly fishing derby held at Pinnacle Mountain State Park.
Quoting one member of CLS...“I have a very big family here!”
