LINKS Linking Individuals Naturally with Knowledge and Support

The LINKS program, is a home and community-based alternative to traditional adult day program activity or work programs.  We offer opportunities to develop skills in meaningful settings and promote choices based on personal preferences and/or individual disabilities. Our Program concentrates on the following three domains: Home Routine, Recreation & Leisure, and Community Integration.

 

HOME ROUTINE Concentrating on developing personal and/or domestic skills, providing opportunities to use learned skills, supporting opportunities to participate, and continuously seek to encourage ownership and responsibility.

 

RECREATION & LEISURE Encourages the development of, or participation in, leisure activities that are meaningful, entertaining, or comforting to an individual.

 

COMMUNITY INTEGRATION Exploring interest in routine and community activities with the intent of developing community skills and community connections.

 

Through regular participation in community activities, including volunteer work and employment, opportunities are provided to build natural relationships while honoring the growth and achievement of each individual.
