Direct support professionals help people with daily living skills within the family home or by helping them develop the necessary life skills to live successfully in their own home. The program empowers people with disabilities by focusing on personal choice and community participation.
Intellectual & Developmental Disability Services
For over 40 years, Volunteers of America has been helping adults with developmental and intellectual disabilities make informed life-choices, acquire daily living skills, and live as independently as possible. Staff assist program participants and their loved ones in developing annual personal plans of care which help them identify their goals for the coming year. Our programs empower people to live quality lives by promoting personal choice and participation in their communities.
Vocational Day Program
The Day Program provides education and training so program participants can attain higher levels of achievement and go on to lead increasingly productive lives. Pre-vocational education helps people gain a skill set, earn supplemental income, achieve a level of self-sufficiency and build relationships in their community.
Professional staff provides 24-hour support and supervision to residents in a family-like atmosphere. Residents collaborate with staff in developing their own plan of care in order to achieve independent living and self-care skills.
