About Us

Mission -- PTI was founded by parents of a high-functioning young adult with special needs.  Our mission is to provide quality apartment style living and support services for high functioning (young) adults with developmental disabilities who are capable of independent living, in a community setting that is safe, affordable, promotes socialization, and encourages independence.
 
Motivation -- Parents worry about what will happen to their son or daughter when they are gone or no longer able to provide support.  "Who will look after them?  Will they have the necessary skills to live independently?  How traumatic will this be for our son/daughter as well as family members who may have to step in?"  As parents, we all know it is better to start this transition now while they are young and while we are still in good health, however, we don’t feel comfortable with the current residential living alternatives, which is why most high-functioning young adults still live at home.
 
Management --Chris Webb, Executive Director and Co-founder 2010 - Present.  Prior to co-founding PTI in 2009 with his wife Janeen, Chris was a financial executive with twenty years experience in Corporate Finance and Accounting.  From 1999-2009 Chris served as CFO for a major rubber and plastics manufacturer based out of northeast Ohio where he had responsibility for a wide variety of areas including financial reporting and compliance, finance and treasury management, insurance and risk management, legal and shareholder matters, pensions and benefits, credit and collections, and tax planning and compliance.  From 1999–2005 Chris also served as the Asst.

“My experience and training in the private sector has served me well in this venture, however, I believe the most important credential we bring to the table is that of being parents of a developmentally disabled child. It is this unique perspective that allows us to fully understand the needs and challenges families face and it is this perspective which has provided us with great clarity in defining our mission and developing our program.”
