DMC advances the concepts of interdependence, collaboration, and unity.

DMC upholds the belief that all U.S. citizens are entitled to the benefits of American society and promotes a global view of inclusion, which embraces diversity on all levels.

Individual Choice

DMC supports the right of people with disabilities to direct their own lives including setting boundaries, taking risks, and pursuing their goals and dreams.


DMC commits to a level of program and fiscal accountability that reflects the trust afforded the center by consumers, funders, and the public.

The Dayle McIntosh Center is proud to be located in Anaheim and takes seriously its obligation to assume a leadership role in improving the quality of life in the city.
