More About Fort Walton Beach Developmental Center

Front of Fort Walton Beach Developmental Center

Fort Walton Beach Developmental Center (FWBDC) is located at 1045 Mar Walt Drive, just minutes away from restaurants, shopping, and medical services. At FWBDC, we inspire individuals to set goals that are geared toward developing happy, healthy lifestyles and assist them to achieve these goals through skills building, promoting independence, and encouraging positive behavior.  

FWBDC creates a home for our individuals that nurtures natural support and lasting, supportive relationships. Our Center focuses on home visits with family members and looks for opportunities to include family members in individuals’ lives. We’re especially proud of our social get-togethers, which offer the opportunity for fellowship and fun for residents and their families. 

We believe FWBDC residents are differently-abled and should be encouraged to live beyond their limitations. We offer the opportunities to explore life and experiences that include scuba diving, vacationing and developing personal and social relationships. Residents also have the chance to participate in the life of their community by attending day programs and local events, visiting local attractions and even taking extended holidays, including, most recently, a cruise!  

FWBDC welcomes visitors! We’d be happy to show you around. Just call our Social Services Director at 850-862-0108.
