The Foundling’s Community Habilitation program assists people of all ages with developmental disabilities in maximizing their potential for independence. Our specialists work with people in their home to achieve valued outcomes that have been identified by the person and their advocate or caregiver.
Many of the people that we work with at The Foundling reside in their family’s homes, where they benefit from strong, loving, and supportive relationships and proximity to family members who truly understand their needs. However, people with developmental disabilities who live at home often need supports in order to build important skills and feel connected to the wider community. Some of the skill building includes development of social skills, community inclusion and relationship building, assistance with activities of daily living, and educational assistance. For school-aged youth, Community Habilitation services also include advocacy and educational supports.
