Chloe Edwards believes adults with disabilities should have a place to go where they can receive care and be with others like themselves.

For the past two years she has been providing personal support services for adults with developmental disabilities in their homes through her Marion County-based business, Abiding Touch.

But she also saw a different kind of need for people in Citrus County a place for them to go during the week where they could learn life skills, watch movies, dance and play games and just be their best selves.

Even with well-established places like the Key Training Center and New Horizons, Edwards said there are still people who are not being served.

There are parents who want more for their children than sitting at home all day, especially if the parents work, she said.

On Monday, Oct. 7, Abiding Love Personal Development Services, Inc., a Non-Profit 501c3 organization, will open its doors as a supportive and encouraging family- oriented environment for adults with disabilities, providing social, educational, and daily living skills.

We want to bring something different, something new to Citrus County to assist parents, Edwards said.

The center offers three programs:

Day program from 7:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Monday through Friday an M-F 7:30-3:30)

After-Care Program, which is also open to high school students with disabilities, from 3:30 to 6:30 p.m., Monday through Friday

Social Club from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. on first and third Wednesdays and from 9 a.m. to noon on the second Saturday of the month.

Transportation for Abiding Love clients is provided for select areas.

We have lots of plans and ideas, Edwards said. We want to help them accomplish their goals, whatever they may be budgeting, math skills, life skills. We also want to create a business that will be theirs.

Abiding Love Personal Development Services, Inc., is at 3451 E. Louise Lane, Suite 112, Hernando, FL 34442, in the plaza facing State Road 200, just north of the U.S. 41 split.
