Our community day services include:

Each consumer is assigned a Qualified Intellectual Disability Professional (QIDP) with specialized training to provide case management services that collaborates with the person supported and their team to create a service plan. The QIDP trains and works with specially trained staff that carry out services outlined in the service plan to assist the person in achieving their goals.
SAVE Community Day Services strives to enhance community connections through large group on-site activities/presentations from community members as well as off-site community activities.
