Innovative Industries, Inc. is a private-not-for-profit 501(c)3 corporation located in Creston, Iowa.  It is governed by a fifteen person Board of Trustees.  Its mission is to assist people with disabilities to identify, develop and achieve their individual life goals by providing vocational and community services.   Innovative Industries is the sole owner of William Eadie Residential Services, another 501(c)(3) corporation.

Incorporated in 1967, the organization has grown and developed programs and services to meet the needs of persons with disabilities in keeping with current wisdom and philosophy regarding service delivery.  Over the years, service locations and program emphasis have changed to accommodate the changing environment. 

The central offices are located in Creston, Iowa, and there are satellite operations located in Winterset, Afton and Greenfield, Iowa.  The Creston location offers day programs and employment services on site and all administrative services are located here.  Day programs and employment services are also offered in Winterset.  Through William Eadie Residential Services, Innovative manages the CARE facility for Union County, located in Afton.  Innovative leases the buildings from the county and manages the program for 30 residents who occupy two buildings on the campus.  Through Support Services of South Central Iowa, Innovative provides Supported Community Living, Respite, and other Waiver services to Adair, Union, Taylor and Ringgold county residents, with the offices located in Greenfield, Iowa.

Innovative and William Eadie are governed by a 15 person Board.  Six of the members are appointed by the County Boards of Adair, Adams, Ringgold, Union, Taylor and Madison Counties.  The remaining nine members are at-large members and are voted on by the existing Board.  County Board members serve for as long as six years and at-large members may serve two three year terms.  The Board is a policy and decision-making board that hires a President and delegates the management of the organizations to that individual.

The Board has approved the following vision statement and works toward its eventual achievement:  “Innovative Industries, Inc. will work toward a community where all citizens are valued, where those who provide support and assistance to others are valued and rewarded, and where all citizens have the power and opportunity to make and exercise individual decisions concerning their own lives, welfare and personal dignity.”
