The expansion of facilities and services for individuals with developmental disabilities continued during the 1970s. Emphasis was placed on the creation of programs and services aimed at enhancing the skills of individuals. Additions were made to the Vocational Center and a gymnasium was built on the Sarah Bonwell Hudgins campus. Two residential cottages were also built on the campus, each housing 10 individuals. The cottages were subsequently converted into two ICF/MRs (Intermediate Care Facilities for the Mentally Retarded) and were the first ICF/MR facilities in the state.
