Adult Day Training

Day Training services provide active training in a non-residential setting to prepare the participant to transition from school to adult responsibilities, learn employment skills, and increase social and behavior skills. This can include meaningful community involvement, career planning, vocational activities, and/or workplace problem-solving skills. Day Training can also focus on retirement activities i.e., hobbies, clubs, and other senior related activities. Participants can build a person-centered plan to increase skills or maintain skills. Utilizing the SCL or Michele P. Waivers.

Life Skills

One of the core focuses of Adult Day Training is the development of life skills. Depending on the participant, this could include: reading comprehension, kitchen safety, how to fold laundry, maintaining a healthy weight, and more. Alongside life skills, there is also a focus on healthy socialization with supervisors and peers. This may include lessons on how to manage anger, the differences between a healthy and unhealthy relationship, and how to communicate needs.

Work Skills

We pride ourselves on the fact that we can provide paid work opportunities for our participants. Paid work is on a first-come first-serve basis and requires training. There are several ways for the people we support to gain work skills. Our janitorial program teaches cleaning duties including floors, tables, chairs, bathrooms, etc. All employees must adhere to a safe work environment and wear protective equipment when necessary. We also offer administrative jobs and light office work, including filing, shredding, organizing, etc. Our Nutrition Program is another paid work skills program. You can find more info on that below.

Nutrition Program

Established in 2023, our Nutrition Program provides free breakfast and lunch to all of our participants, similar to the school system. Meals are restricted to healthy portions and food groups, encouraging a healthy lifestyle. Participants with goals involving learning how to cook are encouraged to assist in the kitchen and prepare breakfast and/or lunch. Once trained, this can become a paid opportunity.

Community Integration

Something that sets us apart is our determination for community integration. Throughout history, people with disabilities have been segregated from society and isolated from others. Our focus is to get the people we support involved in the community as much as possible. This is achieved in three ways: outings, visitors, and public events. We strive to have (at minimum) two outings a day – with 70+ participants, this allows us to take each participant into the community at least twice a month. We also have frequent visitors to volunteer or tour, providing new people to socialize with at our facility. Finally, we host several public events. Some examples include Burger Week, Friendsgiving, and our annual holiday parties.

Pre-ETS (Pre-Employment Transition Services)

Pre-ETS prepares high school students (age 14-21) for the world beyond high school, most notably the workplace and post-secondary education. It aims to provide practical training for high school students to become successful in college or the workplace.

Pre-Voc (Pre-Vocational) Services

Pre-Vocational services are individualized lessons that help to equip adults with the skills necessary to be successful in their career. From job exploration to workplace learning, self-advocacy to post-secondary education, Pre-Voc offers training to help individuals feel better prepared to enter the workplace.

Employment and Retention

Individualized assistance and support to help job seekers reach their employment and career goals. This could include assisting them with discovering skills they have to contribute to a job, developing required skills that employers are looking for, connecting them to jobs and community resources, and providing follow-up support (90 days)

Community Living Supports

Community Living Supports is a program that takes the people we serve into the community one-on-one. CLS staff assist them with various things they would like to do, including but not limited to: going to the gym, shopping, going out to eat, going to the movies, walking in the park, and much more. Not only do the people we serve gain access to transportation, but they have a partner to help them navigate the community and live independently.

Case Management

All participants must have a Case Manager to assist with coordinating care, services and supports. The service must be person-centered and should help the participant connect with community and waiver resources. The Case Manager works closely with the participant to ensure ongoing satisfaction with services, that needs are met, and that health, safety and welfare assurances are in place. Utilizing the SCL or Michele P. Waivers.

Personal Assistance

This service enables the participant to accomplish tasks that the person normally would do for himself/herself if he/she did not have a disability. These tasks can be hands on assistance, reminding, observing, guiding or training during an activity. The service can also assist the participant with managing medical care and transportation to access community resources, activities and appointments, if these are not available under the Medicaid program. Utilizing the SCL or Michele P. Waivers.


This service consists of general household activities that is provided for the participant by a direct care staff. The participant must be functionally unable, but would normally perform, age-appropriate homemaker tasks. Utilizing the Michele P. Waivers.
