Insight Partnership Group (IPG) was founded in May of 2012
by Evan Clouse and Todd Meyer. The
initial push behind the formation of this agency was to move individuals with
disabilities in Henry County Iowa into community living arrangements from
residential facilities. On that date, 12
individuals moved from the old Henry County Care Facility into living
arrangements throughout Mt Pleasant.
Many of those original people still live in community residences
IPG was designed with a philosophy that our employees
“partner” with persons with disabilities to assimilate into local communities,
live productive and enjoyable lives, and meet their responsibilities as
citizens of this country. Our original staff consisted of 33 employees and about 25
served individuals. Services included Supported
Community Living and Day Habilitation services.
In March of 2013, we opened an office in Burlington and
offered our philosophy to interested individuals in that community. A Day Habilitation program began later that
The need for our philosophy and
services included an additional expansion in Wapello County in early 2014. Currently, IPG serves approximately 85 individuals in these
locations with 120 staff.
We support a
housing first model, in that if people have stable housing and support, they
can be successful in integration into local communities. We believe in teaching individuals personal
responsibility and self-advocacy in integrated settings and look forward to
continued partnerships with communities and individuals.
