Day Support

Vocational Center

The Community Options Program is a day support program licensed by the Virginia Department of Behavioral Health and Developmental Services for adults with severe to profound intellectual disability, many of whom experience additional complex physical and/or sensory disabilities. Structured training (available three to five days per week) is provided in the areas of functional community skills and pre-vocational skills. While many of the services are provided in the center, emphasis is placed on community-based activities as a critical part of the program to assist the individuals we support in becoming more independent.

Transportation is provided.

Vocational Voucher Program

The Vocational Voucher Program makes it possible for individuals to participate in a variety of vocational or prevocational day support activities by funding vouchers to pay for some or all of the costs of these services. Participants choose their own vendors and use the vouchers to pay for training in independent living skills or paid work in a variety of settings ranging from structured/supervised work environments to community-based employment sites (e.g. enclaves, mobile work crews, and individual supported work positions). Customers may choose between many Chesapeake Integrated Behavioral Healthcare (CIBH)-approved private organizations. Transportation may also be included.
