The Allies Approach to Support Services

Allies, Inc. offers many diverse and community oriented services under the Division of Developmental Disabilities Supports Program.  Our program options continuously grow and evolve to meet the needs of our community, and we encourage you to contact us for an in-depth overview of our services.  

We provide various program activities under the service categories of Day Habilitation, Prevocational Training, Community Inclusion, Supported Employment, and more. While each of our Supports services can be accessed independently when an individual is developing their personal schedule, we offer several program locations which provide two or more of our Supports services on site.  This allows participants to cycle between activities and services that are of interest to them, and have been identified in their Individualized Service Plan (ISP), creating a full day while under the auspices of one Provider Agency.

This type of customizable programming meets the support needs of many different individuals. It allows participants to build stamina, determine areas of interest or skill, participate in community volunteerism, and explore employment while still being able to engage in arts, culture, and leisure activities.  It is our belief that everyone we serve has ability – a skill, talent or area of interest to pursue – and learning how to develop it through supported programming fosters independence.

Allies, Inc. Mission Statement
Allies progressive services foster independence for children and adults with diverse needs by building bridges between challenge and opportunity.
