our Story

Joyful Gyvers was established in September 2014 when a blessing in the form of an opportunity presented itself to open Joyful Gyvers.  After the support of friends and family, Joy Darden stepped out on faith with the belief that everything was already done.


On January 2, 2015, Joyful Gyvers opened its doors! After gradual word of mouth from our supporters about our excellent service and undoubtable love for our individuals, Joyful Gyvers has since expanded its facility and increased the amount of individuals we serve.  

Joyful Gyvers continues to strive to offer exceptional services to our JG STARS and their families.  Our mission is to continually improve our programs to ensure the same love and passion that opened our doors back in 2015.  Our diverse team of dedicated staff, has well over twenty-five years of experience serving individuals diagnosed with autism, cerebral palsy, intellectual disabilities, Down syndrome, Prader-Willi syndrome, spina bifida  and behavior disorders.
