The Foundling’s Day Habilitation programs for people with developmental disabilities are based in the community and allow participants to connect with businesses, volunteer opportunities, and friends.
The Foundling’s year-round day habilitation program provides people with an opportunity to connect with one another and with others in their community through social, volunteer, and work-related activities. Personalized activities help people have new experiences and get to know their likes and dislikes, creating a rich experience shaped by their preferences. Activities include volunteering, visits to gyms and recreation centers, museum tours, career readiness training, and educational sessions on yoga, healthy eating, and other wellness activities.
Our community-based Without Walls (WOW) programs operate in Queens (Jamaica), Brooklyn, Staten Island, and Rockland County. The Foundling also manages three certified site-based Day Habilitation programs at the following locations:
