Our Services in Maryland
The programs and services offered at Providence Center focus on the individual’s unique needs and goals for their life. We believe a rich, full life is possible with access to all the opportunities available in one’s community and work to help each individual gain meaningful community roles.
Person-Centered Planning operates much in the way it sounds; a method of empowering individuals by discovering their unique wants and individual needs and creating a plan to reach those goals. Person-Centered Planning has shown a demonstrable impact on the lives of those we serve. The approach does this by assisting them in gaining greater levels of autonomy, and in improving overall quality of life by providing the tools and planning needed to make goals more attainable.
Day Services offer our participants various opportunities to socialize and enjoy themselves in a safe, encouraging environment. Activities include crafts, games, healthy exercise, learning and education, counseling, and social, recreational, and educational community trips. Providence Center also extends day services to senior citizens, offering opportunities to stay active and socially-engaged. .
Community Inclusion focuses on empowering our individuals through healthy social interaction, learning basic life skills, and by creating a fully-integrated environment; assisting them in attaining greater personal independence. Our Maryland community is a beautiful one, and our members are encouraged to be an active part of it in order to create a better, happier future for themselves.
A therapeutic approach to building trust and engendering personal growth, Gentle Teaching creates lasting bonds between the mentoring staff at Providence Center and the individuals they support. Gentle Teaching shows each individual that they are important; vital in fact, to themselves and those around them. By creating a strong sense of self-worth and a foundation of trust, we can encourage those we serve to take steps towards their goals and a greater quality of life for themselves.
Providence Center offers transportation services to make our life-enriching programs and community life accessible to those with intellectual and developmental disabilities.
With a lack of public transportation in the area, our fleet is a bridge for those we serve to achieving all they want in life. We operate a fleet of 42 vans and buses that crisscross the county providing transportation back and forth from home to our programs, to jobs and volunteer assignments, and to other community-based opportunities.
