Our Community Support Services are provided through the Learning Network Program, or with one of your supports. The goal is to promote an environment that will facilitate the learning of skills so that all individuals can continue to gain a greater level of independence within the community, their present residential living situation and continue work towards a greater responsibility within their lives. To that end, classes and experiences offer opportunities within a classroom type-setting and in the local community.
Individuals who receive Community Supports are active members of The Green Team, a CDS program focused on recycling efforts at their buildings and in the community. They are also in charge of a monthly newsletter and helping to educate the community of eco-friendly practices and why it is important. Courses vary on a semester basis and individuals can sign up for classes depending on their interests and goals.
How Do I Access Services?
Start by calling (802) 479-5012 x265 and speak to our friendly Intake Coordinator. You will be asked what kind of services you are seeking and depending on your answer (children’s services, developmental services) you will be directed to the correct person. You may also be asked some routine questions and to schedule a brief interview to begin the process of accessing services. In order to receive Developmental Services, you need to be Medicaid eligible. WCMHS can help you apply for Medicaid, if you do not have it in place, and will work with you to access the services you may need.
