Mission Statement

Description

With a mission to develop housing and employment opportunities for people with disabilities, Community Options believes in the dignity of every person, and in the freedom of all people to experience the highest degree of self-determination. Throughout its history, Community Options has participated in institutional closure and community residential placement for thousands of people across several states. As a national agency, COI does not administer any large programs; rather, we recognize that people with the most severe disabilities require environments, equipment, clinical staff, and supports that are individualized and tailored to their specific needs. COI programs and services include community-based living, employment supports, high school transition programs, and specialized programs for respite and medically fragile people with disabilities.
