How We Came to Be!

This partnership began as an idea and a desire to see a positive residential program that empowered the Individual’s served and its employees to gain independence in a compassionate and positive environment. We pride ourselves on our ethical standards and our determination to always do what is right! This partnership brings together multiple areas of expertise and over 25 combined years of experience in the Medicaid Waiver Program in the Fort Wayne, IN area! All programs under this name have received a 3 year CARF accreditation in 2017!
  • A.I.D. Behavior Management was founded as a sister company on April 4, 2017 by Christina Hall and Maria “Joy” Booth. With the same mission and vision as A.I.D. of Indiana we hope to create a behavior therapy program that focuses on the quality of services through appropriate support and intervention. We think outside the box to find solutions to all challenging behaviors.
