Community Support Program

Community Supports offers instruction and services that promote the practical and functional application, adaptation and integration of skills necessary for independent living and community inclusion. We work with adults to support community inclusion, personal development, and supports in areas of daily living.

The Progress Center provides such services with an enhanced focus on community volunteering, health and wellness, skill development and personal growth activities, as well as work readiness skills. Community Supports offers individuals four curriculum tracks to promote skill development in the following areas: Arts, Culinary, Outdoor Recreation and Community Involvement.

On any given day, the individuals we serve, along with our hardworking Direct Support Professionals, can be found practicing new cooking skills, working in our community garden plot, hiking a nearby trail, delivering Meals on Wheels or having a photography lesson. The Progress Center’s activities are as varied as the interests of the individuals we serve.
