About Us

Community Interactions, Inc. (CI) is an organization that provides person-centered services to individuals with autism, intellectual disabilities, and dual-diagnosed behavioral health challenges. Founded in 1971, the organizational vision was inspired by our founder’s brother who lived in an institutional setting for people with intellectual disabilities. The focus was on providing programs, services, and supports that facilitated community integration and self-determination for individuals with intellectual disabilities and behavioral health challenges. The vision was to create a private, non-profit, community organization in less restrictive settings. The reality of that dream was realized in 1973 when CI opened its first home for children with developmental disabilities in Delaware County, Pennsylvania. Today, Community Interactions serves over 200 people in community living settings in the States of Delaware and Pennsylvania.
