Day Habilitation Center - Elba
Day Habilitation Services strive to foster personal growth for those with a disability and encourage integration within the community. The focus is on building self-esteem and independence; while introducing individuals to a variety of experiences, new friends, and possible future volunteer opportunities.
Individuals at the Elba-based Day Habilitation Center are involved in a variety of activities designed to enhance personal growth and social interaction. While the program offers structured training opportunities based on individual needs in self-care, communication, socialization, independent living skills, and healthy living, it also links individuals with disabilities to the community through volunteer work and recreation and leisure activities.
In addition, the program offers a complement of professional services including nursing, speech therapy, occupational and physical therapy and behavior management.
Community Center – Batavia
Day Habilitation Services provide opportunities for life skill enhancement, personal growth and vocation development. At the Batavia site, young adults attend a multi year program called PREP for Life. This innovative program offers young adults training in educational and vocational exploration. Students are involved in a variety of activities within a college atmosphere and in our local community.
Opportunities to explore the world of work and community volunteerism are the highlights of this unique program. Students enrolled in PREP (People Realizing Education and Employment Potential) for Life spend their day at community-based sites including use of resources at Genesee Community College.
