About the Program: Learning and Growing Every Day Imagine a program where the community isn’t just a backdrop but the classroom itself. That’s what our Community Habilitation program, or Comm Hab, is all about. It’s a vibrant mix of engaging activities and personalized skill development, all taking place in the heart of our community. Comm Hab isn’t just about supporting you; it’s about encouraging you to explore, engage, and connect with the world around you in meaningful ways.

Developing Your Skills, Achieving Your Goals We believe in a collaborative approach to personal growth. By sitting down with you, we craft a service plan that aligns with your aspirations and focuses on teaching you the skills for daily independence. These skills include:

  • Friendship Formation: Learn to nurture and sustain meaningful friendships.
  • Community Safety: Gain a robust understanding of how to stay safe in your environment.
  • Financial Management: Master the art of budgeting and managing your money effectively.
  • Independence: Enhance your ability to live as independently as possible.
  • Personal Interests: Develop hobbies and interests that enrich your life.
