Designed for individuals 18 and over with more complex needs, the CBDS career track assists those who want to work but still need additional services and preparation. Our CBDS programs provide workforce-readiness training to strengthen concepts such as professionalism, teamwork, problem solving, social skills, communication, self-motivation and other soft-skills, with a strong emphasis on self-advocacy. Our people are able to apply these skills at volunteer positions with community-based organizations. Days are balanced out with physical exercise, arts and culture, and technology, both on our campus and in the surrounding community.

Services must be referred by Department of Developmental Services.
