The community program, originally called Bright Futures, is a day program for young adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities and was the first program established under Our House Inc. The program centers on the needs of adults who have a diagnosed disability and their families; creating and following a plan to foster independence based on individual goals.
With the growth of students and their changing needs, Our House Inc. has honed the individualized programs and focuses on several different factors.
- Acquisition of daily living skills
- Personal growth activities
- Giving back to the community
- Health and wellness
Our House Inc. strives to build positive relationships among peers and community member and assist individuals in fostering friendships. These natural supports are a great way to encourage community membership and participation.
Referrals are received from private and public agencies, as well as from individual requests. Our House Inc. works with local school district transition programs, families that privately pay, and specific Medicaid waivers.
