Milestones is the premier provider of high-quality, community-based services for children and adults with intellectual and developmental challenges.
“Quality Developmental and Independent Living Services
for Children and Adults”
Adonna Wickliffe, the CEO and Executive Director of Milestones Services, has more than 18 years of management experience in hospital and corporate health care leadership. Her expertise is in health care strategy and business development. She has an undergraduate degree in Health Care Administration from the University of Kentucky, and has a Master’s in Business Administration from the University of Louisville and a Master’s in Health Care Administration from the University of Minnesota. Most importantly, she is the mother of Myles, her son with significant special needs and has more than eleven years of direct experience as the caregiver of a child with special needs.
Adonna started Home Care for Kids, now Milestones Services, as a result of her own family’s experience of having a child with special needs. It was challenging to find companies that would provide respite and developmental services for children with special needs. Out of this unmet need for families across her community, Milestones services was born. A few years later, this unique niche for home and community-based developmental services for children was created.
A Message from Our CEO
Hello, my name is Adonna Bass Wickliffe and I’m the Executive Director and CEO of Milestones Services and the mother of
a child with significant special needs. We have been assisting children and adults with developmental and intellectual
challenges reach their full potential since 2009. We accomplish this by helping them gain appropriate levels independence
in social, academic, and life skills, giving them a voice through advocacy, education and exposure and assisting them in
securing meaningful employment. Our ultimate goal is to improve our clients’ quality of life by helping them reach their full

I am a parent of a child with special needs and I entered this field because I want to raise the bar for the quality and level of services provided for our loved ones. Not only do I run an organization that serves all individuals with developmental and intellectual challenges, I also advocate for all individuals with development and intellectual challenges as well as other physical, emotional and health challenges through my leadership position on the Board of the Council on Developmental Disabilities and as a commissioner on the Board of Commissioners for the Commission for Children with Special Health Care Needs. Without question, I work hard every day to build an organization that respects the individualized need of our clients, delivers high quality services and helps them live full lives as respected and valued members of their communities. I am honored that our clients trust us to provide services for their loved ones and I take that responsibility very seriously. We hope you will give us the opportunity to serve you and your loved one.
