Celebrating Our 37th Year!

OUR MISSION STATEMENT

Seagull Services is a private, non-profit social service agency that is dedicated to facilitating improvement in the quality of life of developmentally challenged children and adults. In addition, it serves those who require support to overcome other social and educational barriers to success in their work and personal lives. Seagull offers advocacy and a variety of educational, social, vocational, and residential programs designed to encourage achievement, self-reliance, and economic independence.

OUR MANDATE

To assist people to live in dignity and realize their life potential through education, training, employment, residential services, transportation and support services.

To watch members of our community grab that high school diploma, take that first bus ride, crank his or her first machine, master the computer program or serve that first customer brings an immeasurable amount of joy and pride to our supporters, program participants and family members who have shared the 37 year journey.

This marks Seagull Services' 37th year as a nonprofit serving teens and adults with an array of developmental disabilities who are striving to become productive citizens. We have grown from Seagull Industries for the Disabled founded by concerned parents in the basement of a church into Seagull Services that includes a state-of-the art charter school and summer camp for ages 12-22.

We also have vocational training facilities with safe and advanced industrial machines, a residential program with life skills training, community based training, transportation and numerous other services to address the total needs of our clients. We have also expanded to provide employment counseling and on-the-job training for those who are not mentally and intellectually challenged but face barriers to employment. We have helped over 2,000 individuals in Palm Beach and Martin counties.

Even with these incredible strides over the past three-plus decades, the basic needs of the special population we serve continues to outpace funding from public and private sources. For example, although there is an increased acknowledgement of spectrum disorders such as autism, agencies like Seagull Services must be creative and innovative with lagging resources to address, what can be considered, this rapidly growing population.

During this anniversary year, we ask you to embrace the challenge to support Seagull Services as we work to give our clients the foundation and resources to realize their life potential and live in dignity.
