The NCDAC was organized and started in the 1970’s with the help of the local chapter of the ARC, who had visions of developing integrated work opportunities for people with disabilities which were no different than those opportunities available to other non-disabled citizens. In 1984, the land in which the new NCDAC was going to be built was purchased from Geddes family. In 1985 the new NCDAC building was built.
