50 Years of Business for Sunland Center


Sunland Center for people with developmental disabilities is celebrating 50 years of business.

The center is also celebrating the success of a recently revamped program.

The newly named Developmental Disabilities Defendant Program, or DDDP, is for people with intellectual disabilities and criminal histories, ordered by a judge to live in a secure setting.

The program prepares individuals to stand trial, as well as provides other services.

Merlin Roulhac with Sunland says, "they have vocational programs, they have the residential piece, they're not homeless, then they can come and we can train them skills to survive in the mainstream once they come out of the secure facility."

The program can hold up to 146 participants from all 67 counties in Florida.
