Dartmouth Adult Services Centre (DASC) has been serving the Dartmouth community for 55 years. DASC is a not-for-profit business and social enterprise which supports adults with intellectual disabilities, dual diagnosis, and/or fragile health and complex needs. In partnership with Nova Scotia’s Department of Community Services, we serve nearly 200 people annually through a diverse range of services including community employment, vocational, skills development, life enhancement, active lifestyles, recreation and leisure, and youth programs.
Revenue generated through our social enterprise (the rental of our modern boardrooms, production of buttons, or business contracts such as labelling, assembly, mailing, and packaging) helps us host our services for persons with intellectual disabilities.
Our main production centre is located at 59 Dorey Avenue in the Burnside Industrial Park in Dartmouth, Nova Scotia.
