Community Supports

A day program is not just a ‘nice’ thing to fill the empty hours…purpose elevates what we do, and creates rewarding possibilities

Having something interesting, meaningful and occasionally even exciting to do during the day is important for everyone. For most of our younger lives this is what school provides and when we leave school, our ‘work’ fills this need.

For individuals with developmental disabilities a suitable day activity can improve confidence, increase self-reliance and expand community participation. Offerings should be challenging with a skill-building focus, and on occasion just plain FUN!

Our programs offer a range of education, enrichment and leisure-type activities that are geared towards teaching new social or practical skills and improving existing ones. Using the Individual Service Plan as a guide desired outcomes are linked to achieving future aspirations and goals while enhancing the quality of each life.
