(Community Living Alternatives’ Specialized Services)
Our Day programs are unique in the community, providing individually designed day services for individuals who desire to stay active, who want to learn, volunteer, and connect with others in their community.
CLASS is comprised of two components:
Specialized Habilitation Activities
Classes in our day program facility include: computer skills, cell phone skills, digital photography, music, dance, healthy menu planning and cooking, arts and crafts, exercise, social and relationship skills, community safety and stranger awareness skills and money management/budgeting skills.
Supported Community Connections
For those who receive supported community connection services, individuals have opportunities to interact with others in the community while taking part in diverse educational and leisure activities. Individuals have opportunities to visit places such as: museums, photography studios/galleries, parks and grocery stores. This is a stand-alone service, or it complements the skills that are learned in Specialized Habilitation Activities.
This day program service provides job seekers with individualized job development services including preparation of an Individual Marketing Profile (IMP) to determine skills and desirable employment options, assistance with resume writing, completing applications, and interviewing with potential employers. It also provides job coaching for those individuals who have obtained a job and need support to maintain employment.
Employment services are an excellent community resource, providing an individual with the opportunity to get a job they enjoy while local businesses learn how they can tap into a valuable but underutilized labor pool.
