Homes

Home is a special entry port for the i world, the place where we can connect face to face with friends and family and through technology with businesses and organizations around the world. Community Options’ stakeholders understand the fundamental importance of home as a physical and an emotional support, especially for people with significant disabilities.

Employment

Employment is one of the core services provided by Community Options. We believe that everyone who wants to work should be given the opportunity to do so, no matter the level of their disabilities. To that end, we have developed an array of income producing projects; from entrepreneurial businesses that employ people with and without disabilities, to supported employment with one-to-one job coaching, to individual micro-enterprises.
