Community Resources

Our Community Resources Department provides the following services:

In-Home Services

In-Home Services support consumers and their families to help them achieve their ultimate goal of living and participating in their communities. Services are provided in eight counties -- Clark, Crawford, Floyd, Harrison, Lawrence, Orange, Scott, and Washington -- and include community- and residential-based habilitation, respite, personal services and attendant care.

In-Home Services are crucial to prevent institutionalization in disabled populations. Services are provided at home, work, and in other places within the individual’s community. Instructors work with consumers in a variety of ways, including personal care and safety, leisure and social activities, decision-making, and self-advocacy.

Habilitation

Provided for persons who are in need of improving and acquiring developmental and life functioning skills, this program offers training activities to assist individuals in developing and improving independence. Personal needs, social and community awareness activities are taught in real-life situations. Through person-centered planning, the program focuses on the person’s needs, desires and strengths in all areas of their lives. By identifying an individual’s goals, an Individual Service Plan can emphasize skills needed to achieve them.
