Community Engagement

Eggleston also offers Community Engagement, which is a new service that provides the individuals with a wide variety of opportunities to build relationships and natural support systems, while utilizing the community as a learning environment. It supports and fosters the ability of the individual to require, retain, or improve skill necessary to build positive social behavior, interpersonal competence, greater independence, employability and personal choice necessary to access typical activities and functions of community life such as those chosen by the general population. These activities are conducted at naturally occurring times and in a variety of natural setting in which the individual actively interacts with persons without disabilities (other than those paid to support the individual). These services are provided to the individual at no more than 1:3 staff to individual ratio.
