Vocational & Community
Helping clients live more independently
Vocational rehabilitation and independent living skills services are designed to help clients prepare to live more independently in the community. For some, that means preparing to transition to adulthood - managing their own affairs and preparing for college or work. For others, it means assistance re-entering the workforce after an injury or illness, and/or learning how to manage at household tasks. Services offered by Courage Center include:
Adult Rehabilitative Mental Health Services (ARMHS) is a rehabilitative program for persons who have a mental health diagnosis along with their brain injury or other physical disability and could benefit from services to regain skills related to independent living or managing their mental health.
Assistive technology (AT) can be as simple as a wheelchair cup holder or as complex as a head-controlled computer system. From toys to computers, if you don’t know what’s possible, or how to obtain what you need, ask us.
