Community Day Services

providing person-centered training to promote growth and independence of each participant

Community Day Services Program

Community Day Services focuses on personal, social, educational and vocational development at all ability levels. The training program includes education, community integration training, pre-vocational training, assistance with personal care, and work opportunities.

Each day is planned around the individual.  The ISC and the person served works with his or her case manager to set goals.  After goals are set by the individual, the support team works to plan an implementation strategy based on their Personal Care Plan in order to work toward the set goals.

Community Day Services are offered Monday-Friday 9:00 am to 3:00 pm. Transportation to and from the MRI facility is provided, if needed.
