Community Options, Inc. of Pittsburgh was established in 1994 to provide residential and employment support services to individuals with disabilities in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.
- Residential Supports
- In-Home Supports
- Vocational Supports
- Pre-vocational Training
Programs are funded through the Allegheny County Mental Health/Mental Retardation Office. Staff meet with the individual and their family to ensure that an individual's plans are person-centered, incorporating the person's preferences accordingly.
Residential programs are designed to assist people with disabilities moving from nursing homes and state schools, or who are on waiting lists for community services, to find housing in the community. Community Options also provides supports to people living at home with their families.
Employment programs focus on individual competitive jobs or community volunteer placements. Community Options provides the evaluations, support and follow-up required to assist individuals with pursuing employment, taking into consideration the special needs of each individual.
Our Option Quest program provides individuals with a variety of options to individualize their personal work schedules. This can include paid employment, volunteer work, attending classes, advocacy work and involvement in the community and civic activities.
