Jim and Wendy Annis opened Paragon Services, Inc. in 1992.  They have dedicated their careers to providing quality services for consumers and their families while retaining a family owned and operated philosophy.  With over 60 years combined experience, they continue to provide leadership in the day-to-day operation of our companies.  

The agency began by providing teaching and training to people with developmental disabilities living in their own homes or family homes.  The first community living arrangement opened in March of 1994, when two young women receiving family services decided they would like to move out of their family homes and begin living independently.  We currently manage twenty living arrangements throughout Duluth and the surrounding area.  Agency wide, we serve over one hundred consumers and their families in a wide variety of service areas.

In July of 2000, Paragon Services, Inc. expanded to include two new companies,
Trillium Services, Inc. and Trillium Works!.

      Trillium Services, Inc. a Community Living and Family Services provider.
      Trillium Works! Inc. a Supported Employment provider.
      Paragon Associates, Inc. providing accessible homes for the individuals we serve.  

Trillium continues to grow and develop individual services for people with developmental disabilities and their families.
