On June 26, 1961, a group of parents in Redford Township formally filled incorporation papers with the state of Michigan to operate a nonprofit, parent organization called the Redford Association for Retarded Children. Although we trace our roots to this historic beginning, the state did not recognize the incorporation until February 9, 1962, and the Redford Association received its tax exempt status from the Internal Revenue Service in 1963. In June, 1963, the Redford Association affiliated with the state and national associations. At this time, parents in other communities were also forming small groups whose purpose was to comfort and aid one another with all the problems inherent in raising a child with mental retardation.
