Community Inclusion Project

The Community Inclusion Project is dedicated to building meaningful connections between individuals with intellectual disabilities and their communities through engaged participation in local organizations and resources. The objecitve is to provide many opportunities to develop respectful and reciprocal relationships and to increase personal growth in one's neighborhood.

This is done by promoting such valued outcomes as presence and participation in community life, exercising choice in life style and vocation, developing and enhancing personal skills.  We act in partnership with each individual we support to achieve these outcomes.

As we all desire to be valued, to do good work, to be known to others in community and to be loved, we assist the people we support to achieve these typical life experiences. We do this by connecting and supporting people in employment, volunteerism, and membership in local places in a person's life.

The Community Inclusion Project is considered to be a 'Without Walls' day habilitation and supported employment program and is funded by the New York State Office of People With Developmental Disabilities.
