OHI’s LEAD ON! Community Support Program offers a customized plan focusing on a unique set of principles to guide each member. They are supported to engage with the community, build upon social roles, and develop lasting relationships. OHI believes everyone is a leader. With the right support, they can use their unique talents and skills to take responsibility for their community’s well-being and improvement.
Participating and contributing in meaningful activities with and for others helps people feel valued as participating members of the community. It builds social capital. The more social capital one has, the more likely they are to get a job, become connected, make friends, and live the life they decide.
At LEAD ON!, OHI has partnerships with area businesses like the Brewer Area Food Pantry and Bonnie’s Bargain Basement to provide program members with opportunities to engage with and assist others in the community. We focus on connections with community events that defy the typical definition of inclusion for people with disabilities.
We teach members how to use public transportation, communicate more effectively with others, and create circles of support. Call today to make an appointment with our Community Support Designer, who will guide you in developing a customized plan that incorporates your interests and talents with personal outcome measures to connect you with other members of your community.
