Creative Minds ADP, founded in 2008, is the brainchild of Liana Aidinova, a dedicated professional with extensive experience in working with individuals with developmental disabilities. Liana recognized the limited choices available to service recipients in terms of day services and was driven to create a solution that would empower individuals to lead more fulfilling lives as active members of their communities.
On November 3, 2008, Creative Minds opened its doors, marking the beginning of a new era in supporting individuals with disabilities. One of the unique aspects of Creative Minds is that its services are determined in collaboration with the individuals served and their circle of support. This person-centered approach ensures that supports and services are tailored to the specific needs, preferences, and goals of each individual.
Conveniently located at 6045 Woodman Avenue, Van Nuys, California, Creative Minds ADP is proud to be a vendor providing a range of services. Our services include:
