Community Integrated Day Support Services

Day support services are not site based. Rather they are focused on creating opportunities in the community for integration, participation and full access to resources such as community colleges, paid employment, volunteer opportunities to develop work training skills. Full community inclusion is goal each day. Clients receive services on an individual basis or within a small group ratio with staff support. This service is ideal for people who do not want to access, or cannot tolerate traditional day program services. Clients receive full transportation support to access community resources, or participate in bus or train training to access public transportation. Clients are supported to develop a daily schedule of activities to meet their individual recreational and vocational needs and wants.

Community is not just a group of people or places but a sense of belonging
