- Home Based Support Services
- Employment Services
- Community-based Day Services

Services are funded primarily through the Division of Developmental Disabilities (DDD) and the Division of Vocational Rehabilitation (DVR). Staff meet with the individual and their family to ensure that each individual's plan is person-centered, incorporating the person's preferences accordingly.
Housing services are designed to assist people with disabilities moving from nursing homes and state institutions, or who are living with family members and are on waiting lists for community placement, to find housing in the community. Community Options also provides supports for people living at home with their families or residing in their own homes.
Employment services focus on individual competitive jobs, community volunteer placements and employment opportunities in a variety of entrepreneurial businesses. Community Options provides the evaluations, support and follow-up required to assist individuals with pursuing employment, taking into consideration the specific needs of each individual.
Option Quest, our community-based day service option, provides individuals with the opportunity to individualize their personal work schedules. This can include paid employment, volunteer work, attending classes, advocacy work and involvement in community and civic activities.
