Milestones of Development INC was renamed from Jody and His Friends in 1985 as new management emerged. At that time Milestones operated 5 Intermediate Care Facilities Developmentally Disabled Habilitative (ICF-DDH) homes for children and young adults. Milestones also operated school programs within some of the home programs as the current public-school platform was not able to accommodate all of the individuals living in the homes. In 1993, Milestones opened a small day program, as some of the individuals served in the home school programs were graduating at the age of 22 and therefore eligible for day program attendance. The day program was licensed for 21 participants. Milestones continued to get more referrals for day program services and thus searched for a larger building.
Day program and offices opened December 1997 at 1 Florida St. in Vallejo. We grew from 21 participants at day program to over 80 with a medical component that was added in 2008. Milestones also provides transportation and most of the vehicles have been acquired through 5310 grants from Cal Trans.
