Vinfen Connecticut’s Day Services give people an opportunity to develop skills, build confidence, and achieve their goals through education or employment. We partner with people to help them build the foundation they need to live independent, successful lives in the community.
We serve a diverse group of adolescents and adults who have intellectual and developmental disabilities, psychiatric conditions, and behavioral health challenges. Our highly-trained staff collaborates with individuals and their support teams to define personal needs and goals. This ensures that each individual receives the support he or she needs to achieve increased independence and community integration.
COMMUNITY INTEGRATION SERVICES
Community Integration Services are designed to provide social skills building, educational enhancement, recreation, and exercise opportunities in the community. Program supports include the development, maintenance, and enhancement of independent daily living skills. Day Supports are individually tailored to help people gain or maintain skills to participate more fully and productively in work, leisure, or community activities
HELPING OTHERS PROGRESS EVERYDAY PROGRAM
Through the Helping Others Progress Everyday (H.O.P.E.) program, we strive to expand the vocational, social, and community horizons of people with psychiatric conditions. H.O.P.E. helps people achieve their fullest potential by offering them opportunities for paid work, educational community activities, and classes that teach daily living skills, social skills, employment skills, communication skills, relationship building, self advocacy, and empowerment. Our day services are based on informed choices made by persons served regarding their preferences, wants, and needs.
Our Employment Services provide individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities the support they need to develop important job skills and job experience needed to establish their career. We provide this through community-based vocational training and employment.
