About Us

Caswell Developmental Center has provided nearly 100 years of service to the citizens of North Carolina. Established in 1911, and opened in 1914, the Center is pleased with its track record in the provision of quality services to individuals with mental retardation and to their families who reside within the Eastern Region of the NC Division of Mental Health, Developmental Disabilities and Substance Abuse Services. During fiscal year 2007-2008, the Center will serve approximately 430 individuals in residence. In addition, it will deliver support services to individuals who are discharged to lesser restrictive settings in the community.

The Center's 1,634 employees are dedicated to providing a support environment in which all individuals served are afforded maximum opportunities to make choices and decisions regarding their lives. Furthermore, the organization is constantly exploring new ideas, approaches, and methods that will ensure the continuous improvement of Center operations and an enhanced quality of life for those who benefit from its services.

The Center is proud of what it has accomplished and is optimistic about its future. Although continuous changes are expected in the nature and scope of the services provided by the Center, the future is expected to be a bright one for years to come.
