Massachusetts Services for Adults

Massachusetts’s programs and services for adults include residential options, community-based day options as well as vocational supports and job coaching.

Residential Services Our residential services in Massachusetts offer a spectrum of options utilizing the foundational philosophy of Positive Behavior Support (PBS) and the principles of Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA). Specialized small Group Homes are designed to meet the needs of people with intense and comprehensive needs. In addition we offer individualized Shared Living for those with an interest in establishing a close connection to a companion or family.

Community-Based Day Support (CBDS) are situated in central Fitchburg and serve as a busy and productive daytime base for individuals who are interested in increasing their adaptive, academic, and work skills, and maintaining a stable group of friends. Focus is a very specialized community-based day program for individuals who have sensory challenges such as deafness, blindness or deaf-blindness caused by Rubella syndrome, congenital problems or developmental illness. Vocational Supports many years ago we became impressed by the number of competent people receiving services from The Department of Developmental Services who were not given the opportunity of working. What was missing? Job Path is the outcome of analyzing what was needed to help people prepare for, find, and keep good jobs, and of ongoing collaboration with the Department of Developmental  Services.
