Elwyn Delaware was established in 1974 at the request of state leaders as a sheltered workshop and vocational training center for people with intellectual, developmental and/or physical disabilities. Over the last 35 years, the agency has developed far beyond these services and populations. Elwyn Delaware was one of the first organizations in the state to provide day care service for families caring for elderly, infirm loved ones, and was one of only two community organizations tapped by the state in 1995, to lead Delaware's Welfare Reform initiative. Today, Elwyn Delaware provides a wide array of services to over 600 individuals annually. The mission of Delaware Elwyn is to increase the self-sufficiency and productivity of individuals with disabilities and other disadvantages. In 2008, the Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities (CARF) gave Elwyn Delaware a full three-year accreditation. The agency's current array of services includes:
Therapeutic day programs and family support services for elderly individuals with mental or physical impairments, including Alzheimer's disease, and their caretakers - frequently their adult children;
Supported community employment and/or sheltered employment services for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities and physical disabilities.
