The Support Services for Adults program is a day habilitation program that provides outcome-based services to adults who want a meaningful and productive day.  The program is designed to build interest in and develop skills for active participation in volunteerism, social activities, and community involvement. The services are person-centered and driven by each individual’s needs and desired supports.
