Pride in North Carolina (PRIDE) offers a community-based network of services designed to meet the diverse needs children, adults, and families in need of support to address mental, emotional or developmental disabilities. This network of services is premised on the belief that programs for this population must be flexible and capable of adapting to the individual’s changing needs.

PRIDE services are rooted in the concept of normalization – the belief that persons with mental, emotional and developmental challenges are an integral part of their communities and should enjoy all the residential, recreational, educational, vocational, and social benefits offered.

PRIDE designs treatment services in collaboration with the individual, his/her family/guardian, involved agencies and any other people that are important in the life of the individual.
