Alternative Day Supports
Our goal is to enable each individual to discover and meet his or her potential for independence and inclusion in the community. Because traditional Community Day Programs may not meet an individual's unique desires and needs, ESBF utilizes the Person Centered Planning Process to design and implement customized programs. Our emphasis is on developing opportunities for community inclusion, increasing independent living skills and developing natural supports and friendships. We typically provide alternative programs Monday thru Friday during daytime hours. Hours and days of support are flexible to meet individual needs and are designed in collaboration with the individual, their family, the Division of Developmental Disabilities, school districts, Vocational Rehabilitation and other appropriate funding agencies.
Community Day Programs
At ESBF, we accommodate individual needs and offer support with personal care needs at our program sites. On-site activities offer a strong emphasis on teaching independent living skills and on implementing therapy recommendations. We also offer computer training on-site. A person-centered approach is used to plan community activities, including volunteer and paid employment opportunities and social and leisure activities that foster community involvement. ESBF maintains a membership at the YMCA, employs a lifeguard and supports a strong swimming program. ESBF Adult Day Treatment Programs operate Monday - Friday from 8:30 a.m. - 3:30 p.m.
