Community Day Services

Community Day Services

The individuals that attend our day program services are provided a supportive, and stimulating environment where they find a real sense of community, while being guided by our dedicated staff to enhance those skills and strengths which will bring them the satisfaction and self-assurance they strive for.

There is a fervent commitment to promote a wider acknowledgement and acceptance of the persons we assist in the hope that their voices will be heard, their dreams respected, and their contributions appreciated. For this to occur we must learn how each individual communicates, and listen deeply. Then, as a group of staff, family, and allies come together to play a part in the creation of the individual’s service plan, we will be postured to follow their lead, rather than direct their path.

Individuals participate in programs and activities in a classroom or community-based setting.  Participants can focus on personal goals related to life skills enhancement, volunteer, and/or real work-for-pay opportunities. To accomplish this, the agency has invested in the development of a professionally designed multi-faceted, engaging curriculum that draws on the interests and input of our participants.
