The Community Outreach Program provides support to individuals of all ages waiting for state or federally funded services; funding for this program is provided by Mill Levy dollars, grants, and donations through the SUN foundation.
Individuals accessing the Community Outreach Program are connected with a supportive coordinator to help with navigation of resources. They can receive a weekly resource newsletter, attend trainings, connect with others receiving services and receive free or discounted services and programs.
The Community Outreach team develops partnerships with many community agencies to provide caregiver trainings identified by people we serve on topics such as:
- Sensory Processing Differences
- Toilet Training at any age
- Guardianship & Funding Sources
- Caregiver Support and Leadership
- Stress Management
- Managing Challenging Behaviors
Trainings are available for professionals who serve or would like to serve individuals with Intellectual or Developmental Disabilities. We partner with area providers to develop supports for kids of all ages that include in or out of home respite, adaptive devices, day and overnight camps, therapeutic recreation, music or horse therapies, and social skills groups. The Community Outreach Department hosts events and activities including a monthly Parents’ Night Out as well as fun, accessible holiday celebrations.
