  • Community Engagement

    Inclusion and participation in the community where you live and work is key to gaining confidence and independence. Our Community Engagement program helps individuals to understand and become a part of the community and to empower families and self-advocates to access community services, resources, activities and programs.

  • In-Home Support

    Community coaching with a Direct Service Professional provides additional support for individuals who want to learn, keep, or improve specific skills either in their home or out in the community in a one-on-one setting.

    Services include assistance with navigating public transportation, grocery shopping, financial management, cleaning, cooking, personal hygiene skills, and other related skills that enhance independence.

  • Community Coaching

    When an individual has behavioral barriers that keep them from engaging with the general public, such as sitting on the sidewalk and refusing to move in a heavily trafficked area, a Direct Service Professional can work with them one-on-one to address these issues. Community Coaching provides the tools and support needed to overcome these barriers so that the participant can fully engage with their community.
