Compassion Human Services provide community-based residences for our individuals in a safe, clean and serene community or neighborhoods. The individuals living in our homes receive twenty-four-seven direct support care from our highly trained employees who understands each and every individual’s Support Plan.
Compassion Human Services understands the importance of homes especially for people with Intellectual or Development Disability. Home is a where we all feel safe, free, and get physical, emotional, psychological and spiritual support.
Compassion Human Services does not believe in segregation especially for individuals with Disability in places such as State Hospitals, State Schools, Supported Living Assistance, Institutions or even Nursing homes. Individuals with Disabilities have advocated for their Civil Rights, which have been afforded to them through Americans with Disability Act (ADA) of 1990. Further affirmation came in 1999 with U.S. Supreme Court’s Olmsted Decision, which confirmed that unjustified segregation is a violation of the ADA.
Compassion Human Services ultimate goal is to ensure that the individuals we serve receive a person-centered support that allows them to live everyday life, a life full of self-determination, potential and full of possibilities. We also offer modifications to support each individual’s specific needs as well as easy access to all our homes for all non-ambulatory individuals.
Community Integration Services
Compassion Integration Services is a community-based program to provide our clients with the skills they need to live an everyday life, whether at home, at school or out in the community. They include training on safety, transportation, social skills, shopping skills, banking and compliance with rules and directions.
The goal is for our clients to be able to pursue the greatest level of independence possible and to become an integral part of the community. All of our CIS training is conducted where the client lives, so they can get to know their neighbors and develop a network of people who understand their needs and support their efforts.
For example, by going to local town events or participating in a sports activity at a community recreation center, our clients will be able to work on their socialization skills. By shopping for groceries at the community supermarket, they can learn financial skills and also learn to be an advocate for his/her needs. Increased community skills mean increased independence resulting in more typical social integration.
Core objectives for Compassion Human Services on CIS Program is to improve on the following:
- Purchasing skills
- Safety skills
- Community Communication
- Community Awareness
