What is PCR?
PCR is a private nonprofit organization that promotes the inclusion of persons with developmental differences – intellectual and developmental disabilities (I/DD) – into all aspects of community life. Founded in 1994 by a small group of families at Our Lady of Mercy Catholic Parish, PCR today serves hundreds of individuals and families in the DC region. They accomplish their mission by: providing award-winning therapeutic, social, recreational, and respite care programs, connecting people with I/DD to services and supports that help them live healthy, fulfilling, and independent lives, and by public education and public policy advocacy, creating new Spanish-language and American Sign Language resources for people with I/DD and their families, supporting community-based organizations with similar missions; and creating community-based, safe, and affordable housing opportunities for people with I/DD.
