A Brief History

Threshold Residential Services, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that was founded in 1975 to provide an alternative to institutional living for individuals with developmental disabilities. The first home was developed and began operating in 1979, providing a community-based home for eight adult men near New Waterford, Ohio. We began expanding residential services in 1981 and have continued to do so throughout the years, now operating in 22 different residential locations throughout Columbiana County. In 2005, we began providing adult day services in East Palestine, Ohio. In recent years, efforts have been focused on evolving our service models to create more emphasis on independence, integrating our services within the local communities of Columbiana County.
