Company Description

Dungarvin is a national organization of privately owned companies that provide high quality, community-based supports to people with intellectual and developmental disabilities, people who are faced with mental health, behavioral or significant medical challenges, and to children and their families. Because each individual we support is unique, we strive to provide services that are tailored to each person's own hopes, dreams, goals and needs. In partnership with the regional centers, Dungarvin has been providing services in California for more than 20 years.  Beginning in Northern California with adult day programs and transportation services, Dungarvin expanded into Southern California approximately 5 years ago with partial community inclusion day programs and residential services. 


In March 1976 our founders Tim and Diane Madden decided to start a business that would provide community housing for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities. Through diligent research and planning Tim and Diane officially opened their first 15-person residential program in St. Paul, Minnesota, a mere 4 months later. For the next 3 years Tim and Diane lived as "houseparents" on the ground level of that home; on a mattress on the floor! Through the success of that program, Dungarvin has grown to employ approximately 4,000 people who currently provide supports to over 4,712 individuals across 14 states with their continued leadership.
