Community Participation Support provides opportunities and support for community inclusion and building interest in and developing skills and potential for competitive integrated employment. Services should result in active, valued participation in a broad range of integrated activities that build on the participant’s interests, preferences, gifts, and strengths while reflecting his or her desired outcomes related to employment, community involvement and membership. To achieve this, each participant must be offered opportunities and needed support to participate in community activities that are consistent with the individual’s preferences, choices and interests.
Community Participation Support is intended to flexibly wrap around or otherwise support community life secondary to employment as a primary goal. This service involves participation in integrated community settings, in activities that involve persons without disabilities who are not paid or unpaid caregivers.
This service is expected to result in the participant developing and sustaining a range of valued social roles and relationships; building resources and experiences in the family and community; increasing independence; increasing potential for employment; and experiencing meaningful community participation and inclusion.
