Autism Services Center (ASC) owns/operates a number of homes within the city of Huntington, West Virginia. Each home is carefully chosen and well-maintained to blend in with the surrounding community and is not identifiable as being an agency dwelling. Each is staffed 24/7 by employees who have been specially trained and are supervised.
In 1989, the WV State Legislature closed the last of the state-run institutions for individuals with developmental disabilities. ASC remodeled one of its homes to accommodate six medically-fragile individuals from that center. It is staffed by LPNs and direct support staff that are specifically trained in caring for the particular needs of those individuals.
