Mission Statement

Community Options’ mission is to develop housing and employment supports for persons 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. Embracing this philosophy, Community Options works with individuals with significant disabilities through residential services, day programs, social enterprises that employ individuals with disabilities, high school transition programs, and specialized programs for respite and medically fragile adults. As a national agency, Community Options seeks to promote the inclusion of people with disabilities in the community through person centered and natural supports, and collaboration with community partners to increase accessibility to services. t.

Description

Community Options, Inc. was incorporated on February 9, 1989 to develop residential and employment supports for people with severe disabilities. Since its inception, Community Options has been devoted to serving individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities, thus cultivating a reputation for providing exceptional person-centered services that are unique to each individuals’ needs. 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.
