About Link Associates:

Link Associates is a community based non-profit organization that provides services for more than 600 individuals with intellectual disabilities and their families since 1953. Services offered by more than 300 employees support a full integration into the greater Des Moines community. Every person served by Link Associates has the primary diagnosis of intellectual disability and frequently other intellectual and physical conditions as well. Although other organizations serve people with intellectual disabilities, Link Associates provides a full range of services. People with intellectual disabilities attend school, go to work, participate in leisure opportunities and shop along with the rest of the community. However, people with intellectual disabilities and their families face exceptional challenges in maintaining support,, especially when they become adults. Adults with intellectual disabilities are often overlooked as it is more difficult to appeal to public support when they physically change from children to adults. Link Associates recognizes the unique services needs by offering residential, day habilitation, community employment, transportation, case management, and leisure services. When combined, these services meet the full spectrum of life-long needs as well as the needs of their family.
