These services may focus on personal care, skill acquisition and family defined supports. These supports are tailored to each family with the common goal of keeping the family together.

Service Coordination. This service provides a central person to make sure that an individual has all the services and supports they need in all aspects of their life. This includes engaging in the development of individualized service plans and the monitoring of community-based services.

Outreach. Limited support is provided to facilitate the independent living of individuals in the community through support with money management, grocery shopping, or other life skills.

Vocational Supports. The focus of these supports is identifying employment opportunities, getting a job and providing support to maintain it. This includes working with local businesses to develop work opportunities for individuals with disabilities.

Day Services. This is a broad range of services provided to individuals in their local communities. This may include recreational opportunities, volunteer activities, work experiences, relationship building and personal skill development.
