Community Development Services

At The League, we believe that each participant should be able to choose how they want to participate in their community.

Community Development Services (CDS) are designed to help participants become more connected to their community by assisting them in exploring, learning, and growing. Within this service, groups of one to four participants receive integrated services within the community to achieve their goals. Trained staff work with each CDS group to create a tailored program to enhance each participant's quality of life.


This is a good model for:

  • Participants who are currently receiving services at a Day Habilitation Program site and who are interested in receiving services in the community,
  • Transitioning youth who are not job ready, and
  • Participants who are near retirement.


Activities Include:

  • Building connections through community exploration
  • Making decisions to improve health and wellness
  • Practicing self-advocacy
  • Volunteering
  • Mastering money management skills
  • Encouraging social skill development
  • Learning and maintaining skills of daily living

Funding Sources

All services are funded through the Developmental Disabilities Association (DDA). Private pay is also accepted.
