Our Services for Adults with Intellectual & Developmental Disabilities in Maryland
Providence Center’s services for adults with developmental disabilities 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 discovering a person’s goals and creating a plan to reach those goals. Person-centered planning has shown a demonstrable impact on people’s lives. The approach does this by assisting them in gaining greater levels of autonomy and improving overall quality of life by providing the tools and planning needed to make goals more attainable.
Day programs for adults with disabilities offer people opportunities to socialize and enjoy themselves in a safe, encouraging environment. Activities include crafts, games, healthy exercise, learning and education, counseling, and community trips. Providence Center also extends day services to senior citizens, offering opportunities to stay active and socially engaged.
Community inclusion focuses on helping people through healthy social interaction, learning basic life skills, and creating a fully integrated environment. Our Maryland community is a beautiful one, and the people at Providence Center are encouraged to be an active part of it in order to create a better, happier future for themselves.
Providence Center offers transportation services to make our life-enriching programs and community life accessible to people.
Despite the lack of public transit in the area, our transportation services offer more opportunities to become more involved in the Anne Arundel County community. We operate a fleet of 42 vans and buses that provide transportation back and forth from home to our programs, to jobs and volunteer assignments, and to other community-based opportunities.
