Adult Day Services

Our Day Service programs offer opportunities for adult individuals with ID/DD Disabilities to truly connect to and engage with their communities. Our Day Services allows for individuals to be engaged in the community as part of a group of their peers, or on a 1:1 with just the participant and our Highly Trained and Experienced support staff in a Center-Based or Non-Center Based Day Support Setting.   

These exciting services treat the community itself as a learning environment to build/develop adequate supports that lead to building independence, developing relationships, learning your community and various resources throughout your community.
