Community Engagement
Service Description Community engagement supports and fosters the ability of a person to acquire, retain, or improve skills 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 may include community education or training, retirement, and volunteer activities.
Community engagement provides a wide variety of opportunities to facilitate and build relationships and natural supports in the community while utilizing the community as a learning tool.
 These activities are conducted at naturally occurring times and in a variety of natural settings in which the individual actively interacts with persons without disabilities (other than those paid to support the individual). The activities enhance involvement with the community and facilitate the development of natural supports.

more of the following outcomes particularly through community collaborations and social connections developed by the program(e.g.partnerships with community entities such as senior centers, arts councils, etc.)
