In-Home Community Support Services
Formerly, known as Habilitation Services, Direct Support Professionals provide one-to-one training for individuals to learn, maintain and improve everyday living skills so that they can live as independently as possible and to participate more fully in community life.
DDS-Direct Support Professionals (DSP) provide 1:1 services in the individual’s home or in the community and may assist individuals in gaining necessary skills for daily living. Some of these skills include financial literacy, banking, home budgeting, how to access public transportation, grocery shopping, cooking, laundry and other domestic tasks.
Based on the individual’s goals, Direct Support Professionals will explore opportunities for individuals to participate in community projects through volunteerism and community work projects. In-Home and Community Support Services are available to individuals who are currently working with a Supports Coordinator. Interested persons should contact their Supports Coordinator and request that habilitation goals be included in the Individuals Support Plan (ISP). Goals are customized to each individual with the objective for each person to become as independent as possible.
