Holly Center is a Maryland DHMH - DDA state residential facility for persons who are mentally retarded and otherwise, developmentally disabled. Located on seventy-five acres within the city limits of Salisbury, the Center serves as one part of the service delivery system for persons living in the nine counties of the Eastern Shore of Maryland.

The Center is committed to providing high quality and individualized services that are designed to meet the needs of each individual. Holly Center is guided by the principle of self-determination through empowering those who live at the Center in the decision making process.

Holly Center's experienced professional staff works as a team to evaluate the person with developmental disabilities, counsel families and provide services. The interdisciplinary approach is the vehicle which drives the provision of services. This includes, but is not limited to, the identification of a single Interdisciplinary Team for each individual. Each team meets at least annually and develops an individualized habilitation plan. Services provided include Audiology, speech, physical and occupational therapy, psychology, vocational, nursing, medical and social work. [1]
