The Beaufort County Developmental Center's (BCDC) mission is to empower citizens with developmental challenges through service alternatives which promote...

  • Self-Advocacy - the ability to speak for yourself or behalf of someone else.
  • Self-Reliance - having confidence and trust in your own feelings and abilities.
  • Self-Direction - the ability to guide yourself through life.
  • Self-Sufficiency - having enough of everything you need to be successful and happy.
  • Self-Actualization - the ability to create opportunities which cause positive changes in your life.

We believe that a person with a disability is a unique individual who has his or her own set of individualized needs.

In 1974 a group of concerned parents led by J. Phil Roberson, Sr. joined together to create more opportunities for their children with developmental disabilities. This shared concern led to the incorporation of Beaufort County Developmental Center (BCDC).

Located at 1534 West Fifth Street in Washington, North Carolina, BCDC is the largest private nonprofit organization in Beaufort County. BCDC services have grown to include Residential Assistance, Vocational Training, Supported Employment, Innovations Waiver Program, Child Development Services and Transportation to over 300 citizens with Developmental Disabilities. BCDC has branched out in all directions with multiple assistance programs for those with disabilities.

BCDC has developed a broad array of services to meet the educational, residential and vocational needs of citizens with disabilities. Other vital supports, including a child development center and countywide transportation services, have been created to assist the families of these citizens.
