Community-Based Day Services

Philadelphia, PA

Community Endeavors (community-based day services) is a different concept in day services for adults and seniors with developmental disabilities. Unlike most traditional day programs, adults in Community Endeavors spend their day out in the community participating in activities of their choosing to meet their goals and becoming active members of their communities.

A Day in Community Endeavors

Each day begins in a relaxed social setting as the individuals and staff prepare for the day. Each person will embark on individual or group activities they have selected. If individuals choose to stay on site, they can enjoy a range of activities:

  • Excercise/wellness programs
  • Music/art classes
  • Communication/technology
  • Personalized programs

Individuals will have increased opportunities to interact with peers with simliar interests and goals. All group activities are designed to build socialization skills and promote greater participation in our community.
