Community Support

Every person, regardless of their circumstances, deserves access to community resources that will help them live the life they wish to lead. Our Community Support program offers a central hub that puts individuals in touch with those resources.

Community Support Programs

Community activities include planned outings and classroom-style programs. We ensure that each individual receives the benefits of being active participants in their own neighborhood.

Local Outings for Individuals with Disabilities

Individuals in SOAR participate in outings and activities in small groups with a 1:6 ratio throughout the community 95% of the time during the day.

We offer educational, social and recreational programming. Please fill out our contact form and check the Community Support box to receive information about eligibility requirements.

Equipped for Community Engagement

Our goal with Community Integration is to equip people with the skills and knowledge to engage in their community. This service is provided on an individual basis (1:1) or in a group setting (1:4) and occurs in a variety of locations during various times throughout the week.

Through 1:1 staff coaching, individuals work on specific skills based on their goals. We tailor the program to meet the needs of each individual to help them increase their independence at home or in the community.

Whether in a group or individual setting, staff teach individuals how to develop relationships with the broader community, participate in recreational activities, and volunteer.

Assistive Technology & Support for Persons with Disabilities

We use Remote Support Technology to promote independent living for individuals with disabilities. Remote Supports is an innovative system with a variety of technology options. This assistive technology supports individuals from an off-site location to empower community living without in-person staffing.

Remote Supports are best suited for individuals who can be virtually supported through technology with off-site staff available 24/7. Remote Support Services offers individuals with opportunities to learn and practice self-reliance and manage their activities of daily living on their own.
