At Quest, we believe that all individuals have a right to an identity that is not defined by their disability, but rather their knowledge, skills, and community engagement. To this end, Quest provides a variety of services that support individuals as they develop new skills, seek new challenges, and learn to advocate for themselves in all settings.
As the heart of Quest Farm, our residential program provides a safe and caring home for our residents to call their own. Our residents range in age from 18-80, and are supported by staff who assist with daily living skills and activities. Each of our other programs provide unique opportunities for individuals (both residents and non-residents) to learn new skills and develop community bonds. By strengthening bonds to their communities, individuals have a greater opportunity to take part in daily living activities that are often taken for granted.
Quest also provides access to a number of Special Olympics sports throughout the year, including bowling, track & field, and softball.
Q: I thought Quest Farm was just a farm?
A: Outside of our 26-acre farm, we also provide various programs to help our clients lead fulfilling lives. While the farm has been our legacy, we have multiple programs that take place in the community and benefit more individuals who need assistance with daily living, employment support, and community involvement. These services are administered out of our Quest Connect location in downtown Georgetown
Q: How do I qualify and or apply for services provided by Quest?
A: Clients utilize the Michelle P. and Supports for Community Living Medicaid waivers that are available to qualifying individuals throughout Kentucky. These waiver programs provide for a number of services to individuals, at no cost to them or their loved ones.
Individuals who are residents of Kentucky, and have a diagnosed intellectual disability are eligible to apply for the Michelle P. and Supports for Community Living Medicaid Waivers. These waivers are administered through the Department of Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities. While there are currently waiting lists for each waiver, individuals are encouraged to begin the application process as some emergency allocation is available. Please see our Waiver Navigator page for more information on all of the waivers available.
Q: What is Quest Connect?
A: Quest Connect at The Buddy Williams Center is located at 100 Buddy Williams Place, in Georgetown. This location gives us additional space to better meet the needs of our individuals, but also allows us to remain an important part of the thriving downtown community.
Thanks to a generous donation by the family of Buddy Williams, one of our previous residents, we were able take this step out on faith and move forward with the purchase and renovation of this property. Naming the facility after Buddy Williams is a way to honor his memory as well as recognize the generosity of his family.
