Community-Based Day Services

Community Endeavors (community-based day services) is a new concept in day services for adults and seniors with developmental disabilities. Unlike most traditional day programs, adults in Community Endeavors spend their day in the community participating in activities of their choosing to meet their goals and becoming active members of their communities. Participants in Community Endeavors access many resources in the Philadelphia area, including:

  • RiverBank Ferry 
  • National Constitution Center 
  • Fox Chase Farm 
  • Academy of Science 
  • Living Loft Giant Puppet Museum 
  • Philadelphia Doll Museum 
  • Pennypack Environmental Center 
  • Awbury Arboretum 
  • Boat House Row and Sculptural Garden 

What kind of activities are available?

The opportunities range from community integration/involvement, job exploration, academic activities, socialization, community awareness, health/fitness and other skill development activities. The program will utilize the wide range of activities and opportunities available in the greater Philadelphia area. Activities may include:

Above all, the service model will honor the individual's choice, focus on personal outcomes and offer our adults greater flexibility in choosing their schedules and developing their interests.
