Program Managers and Support Managers are responsible for the overall management of a residential program for people with IDD to ensure that they receive the support, activities, and care they need in a safe and nurturing environment. The day-to-day operation of group homes is their responsibility as well as supervising staff and overseeing the training of new staff in the homes. They also work in cooperation with administrative staff and Support Coordinators to develop and implement Individual Service Plans.

Community Support Staff (CSS), also known as Direct Support Professionals, provide compassionate care and support to people with IDD. They perform this work in a residential setting, such as a group home or supervised apartment. CSS are responsible for assisting individuals with daily living activities and helping them acquire the physical, intellectual, emotional, and social skills needed to live as independently as possible. They also support individuals in becoming active members of their community.


Day Program Managers oversee our day habilitation programs. These programs provide the opportunity for people with IDD to engage in a variety of person-centered community and site-based activities matched to their unique abilities and needs. Day Program managers and staff develop individuals’ critical daily living skills, implement meaningful social and instructional activities, and support the physical, mental, and emotional health and well-being of those we serve. They also engage day program participants in community activities to develop their peer and organizational relationships, encourage leisure interests, and promote community integration including volunteerism.

Community Integration Support Staff (CISS) support individuals with IDD in our day habilitation programs. CISS facilitate fun, engaging, and educational activities within the day program facility, as well as through leisure activities, field trips and volunteer work in the local community. They also assist with vocational skill development and cultivating employment opportunities for those we serve.

Employment Specialists provide support and guidance to people with IDD so that they can obtain meaningful employment. In this dynamic role they develop community relationships that foster new job opportunities for those we serve, assist individuals with job placement, coach them as they learn their new job, and provide them with the skills and knowledge necessary to work proficiently and independently.


Licensed Practical Nurses and Registered Nurses work in our residential and medical group homes and day habilitation programs to provide hands-on medical care to those we serve. They ensure individuals have access to medical care that meets their unique needs, coordinate visits to medical providers, and advocate on behalf of individuals to ensure the delivery of safe, appropriate, and effective care. Our nursing teams also educate and support individuals so that they can play an active role in maintaining their own health and well-being.

Behavior Specialists and Board Certified Behavior Analysts (BCBA) work with individuals with IDD to provide interventions that transform challenging  behavior into constructive and adaptive behaviors that improve the quality of their lives. This support helps them to flourish and succeed in their community, at home and in their jobs, and achieve greater independence. Behavior Specialists and BCBAs perform assessments on individuals, develop individualized treatment plans, and help implement  them with the support of residential and day program staff. They also help those we serve develop social skills, enhance coping skills and self-regulation strategies, and work toward accomplishing their own personal goals.
