Community Habilitation is a waiver program funded by Medicaid and is available to children and adults with developmental and intellectual disabilities. Both, individuals residing in certified settings and individuals living in the community are eligible for this program.
The goal of Community Habilitation is to provide community integration and independent living skills. An individual in the program may receive anywhere from 4 to 30+ hours a week of the service - depending on their needs. The Community Habilitation staff provide all transportation to individuals in the program. Community habilitation is based on person centered planning, meaning that the individual decides what goals are important to work on and how the goals will be met.
This is a fun and educational program that supports independent living and provides opportunities for people to get involved in their community while learning new skills.
