Community Support Program
The Citizens of Maine Community Support program is not a single, one-dimensional support program. We offer four different, exciting, and unique programs. You can choose to participate in one, all, or a combination of the provided programs. We offer a wide variety of activities and settings that encompass the State of Maine's ambitious incentive to provide individualized community access and integration. Our four unparalleled Community Support programs are: Special Olympics, Facility-Based, and Community Based.
Facility Based Program
Our Facility Based program is located at the Citizens Center. Members who attend this program spend the majority of their time at the Citizens Center working on individual goals and gaining new skills with the support of engaged, attentive, caring Direct Support Professionals. Activities provided at the Facility-Based program include arts and crafts, cooking, math, reading, games, volunteering, modified sports, social skill-building, and much more. This program provides shared staffing in small groups.
