Community Connections


A community inclusion program for individuals with disabilities, offering a variety of educational, community and recreation activities

Community Connections offers individuals with disabilities training in life skills, education and opportunities to be included in the community. The program is designed to provide creative and meaningful activities that help them build skills and increase their independence. Participants choose the activities they wish to participate in and identify personal goals and skills they wish to develop.

Program Activities:

  • Design Success Classes — In this creative arts program, participants create unique crafts and designs that are sold in the Helping People Succeed shop, as well as other retail outlets.
