About Lirio Resources

We are Better Together

We are Better Together

In thriving communities, all people have equitable access to meaningful employment, affordable housing, and engaging activities. Vibrancy for all creates attachment, pride, and investment in our community.

Removing Barriers

Having a physical or intellectual disability presents obstacles to equitable access to resources. A community cannot truly thrive when segments of its population are excluded from accessing resources to address basic human needs.

Always Learning

While we honor and respect our past, we are also willing to reevaluate our methods and adapt to new times, techniques, and understanding. When it comes to serving you, we strive for what’s best – not just what we’ve done before.

Let’s Join Together!

Our organization builds equitable access and rallies the community to create a thriving community for all.

Frequently Asked Questions

How long has Lirio Resources been in existence?

The agency was founded by a group of families and supporters from the Monticello area in 1953. An unrelated group formed the Opportunity School in Rensselaer the following year. These two grassroots organizations struggled during the early years. However, after combining in 1967, the agency began to develop more professional services for children and adults and administrative support.

In 1998, the organization, known as Comprehensive Developmental Centers, Inc. since 1971, changed its name to CDC Resources, Inc. to better reflect its mission and diversity while retaining the locally well-known “CDC” description.

What geographic areas do you serve?

Lirio Resources has historically served Benton, Carroll, Jasper, Newton, and White counties — a rural area covering 2200 square miles with an estimated 95,000 residents.

Additionally, it had served some families in southwest Pulaski county and northeast Tippecanoe counties when families sought our services.

The agency utilizes a fleet of buses, transit vehicles, and vans to enable individuals in these communities to access needed services.

Who do you serve?

The agency started by serving children and adults with developmental disabilities. The agency has expanded its capacity to include individuals with physical and sensory impairments and traumatic brain injury.

We also have specific services tailored to persons with severe and profound challenges. There are few choices for families in our area, and we strive to offer the highest quality support and services possible.

How are you funded, and what fees are charged?

The organization has a varied and complex funding pattern. The largest revenue sources are Indiana state funding of adult day services and Medicaid revenue for providing group home and Medicaid Waiver services.

Other significant income comes from the county government, grants, subcontracts, and other enterprise sources. We are much more dependent upon government funding than is comfortable and strive to become more self-sufficient. We have some fees tied to specific programs to offset unfunded costs. Most services are free or have only minimal costs.

We are upfront on any family costs required by third-party funders such as Medicaid. We want you to be fully informed.
