Starting October 1st of 2022, Thursdays are only open to members in our community who are in need of community engagement and currently have a waiver that allows them to receive such service from DDA/DSHS.
Community engagement is described as followed by the DDA/DSHS:
Community Engagement services are one-on-one services designed to increase a client’s connection to and engagement in formal and informal community networks and supports. Services are designed to develop creative, flexible, and supportive community resources and support for people with developmental disabilities that result in positive relationships, valued community roles, and involvement in preferred community activities, organizations, groups, or projects. Clients are introduced to community members, organizations, resources, and supports that are available in their immediate and surrounding areas and are supported to develop skills, meaningful roles, and positive relationships that will facilitate inclusion into their community.
Examples of Community Engagement activities:
Attending art classes in the community
Support in learning how to ride public transportation and/or Kitsap Access
Support and guidance in grocery shopping
Volunteering at local organizations
