Our Community Integration Adult Program focuses on developing independence, self-advocacy, self-esteem, and confidence. In our program, we mentor, educate, and guide individuals in the right direction. Services are for individuals concerned with the academic, social success, and independent living of youth and adults with disabilities. The program is to provide opportunities for community participation.

The scope of services is based on the identified needs and desires of the person receiving services.

Our services aim to improve the skills of an individual in order for a successful and full integration into adulthood to occur. A few examples of where this service may be appropriate is those needing mentoring, guidance, advocacy, and coaching. We help individuals who need help with social skills, has no work experience, and who needs someone to provide motivation and support. Additionally, these services are appropriate to those who seem to be a loner or withdrawn concerned with grades/school work, problems with friends/peers, students dealing with stress, and parents concerned about the vocational future and independence of their child.

We work with students with social, emotional, behavioral, physical, cognitive, developmental disabilities, and parents who are just concerned about the future of their child.
