From community living for adults with disabilities and autism in Pennsylvania to independent living, for a few hours per week or 24-hours a day, individuals who participate in our programs and services depend on Community Interactions, Inc., to support them in making their own choices and enjoying the same quality of life as others in their community.
PENNSYLVANIA DAY PROGRAM
The Community Interactions Day Program, located in Broomall, Pennsylvania, has a strong community-based component along with on-site activities such as art and music, computer, and fitness and wellness classes, and an ever-expanding variety of others.
Individuals enjoy contributing to their community and assisting those in need. Whether delivering meals, bowling, or recycling, our day program participants enjoy a variety of activities based on their interests. The friendships that are developed with people in the community help form lasting relationships and the volunteer skills learned are designed to assist individuals as they seek employment in the community.
For individuals who prefer a calmer environment, the sensory room serves as a quiet place for individuals to listen to soothing music and do gentle exercises to help them start, and in some cases end, their day on a positive note.
Home-Based Community Services
Community Participation Supports (CPS) is designed to provide opportunities to individuals with disabilities for integration and inclusion in their community. Activities are planned with the individual based on interests and assist them in developing skills and increasing potential to be an active member of their community. CPS is intended to increase independence and the potential for employment as well as becoming a valued member of the community.
CPS activities are community-based and focus on the development and facilitation of relationships. Through volunteer work, clubs and other group activities, skills are practiced and designed to help with future employment opportunities.
If needed CPS may also include learning to navigate the community through public/private transportation.
Home Based Waiver (HBW) is a program at Community Interactions that provides support for individuals who live at home. Home-based supports can range from assisting individuals with household chores and cooking to teaching daily living and social skills, or helping them get involved and connected with their community. Staff may also take individuals to doctor appointments, grocery shopping or social events in the community.
The individual or their family decides how, where, when and by whom the services will be provided. This program is designed to give people services that improve the quality of their lives, while helping them gain greater independence and lead fuller and more meaningful lives.
