Community Habilitation 

The Arc of Chemung's Community Habilitation is a skill-building support, designed to focus on areas of skill that can help people reside more independently in their community. Utilizing a person-centered approach, Community Habilitation staff work with the person and their Circle of Support to determine the areas in which skills need, or want, to be learned. Some common areas are budgeting, housekeeping, grocery shopping, cooking, health/wellness, socialization and community inclusion. Once a person’s Community Habilitation plan has been developed, staff provide one-on-one assistance to help the person acquire and keep each skill. The ultimate goal of the program is to assist people in being independent, contributing and valued members of their communities. Through self-direction, a person and their family can be as involved as they desire in the hiring/scheduling of staff and planning of supports.
