Community Based Day Supports offers a supportive program to adults with Developmental and Intellectual Disabilities which assists individuals to develop, maintain and enhance their ability and confidence in personal, social and community activities. Skill development activities occur in the areas of communication, self-care, socialization, relationship-building, healthy living, self-advocacy and community involvement.
A major focus is to become involved in and contribute to the local neighborhood and community, spending time with other people with similar interests. The program supports the person who may have employment as a goal but who needs more support and instruction in order to be ready to obtain a desired job. Volunteer job opportunities are offered where the individuals can try out different types of work and see if it is a good match for them.
