Blue River Services
Blue River Services, Inc.

With this guiding philosophy for more than 60 years, BRS continues to identify barriers to independence and help people overcome them. BRS strives to reach its motto of “People Serving People” by providing exceptional services at all stages of life, level of ability, or income. The agency annually serves more than 20,000 individuals through more than 20 programs in 30 Indiana counties.
We’re On a Mission…
To assist people with disabilities in realizing maximum personal growth and development in home, work and community by providing a continuum of individualized services and supports in settings least restrictive for the needs of the individual.
As an adjunct to these services, whenever possible, Blue River Services, Inc. will serve the similar needs of the general community by providing services in non-segregated, community-based settings which emphasize the integrated inclusion of people with disabilities into all areas of life which are enjoyed by members of the community.
