Narrative

Our In-Home Support program is a supported living service offered at Communitas; our dedicated staff of mentors assist individuals to live independently in apartments located in Wakefield, Reading, North Reading and Saugus.

As part of the In-Home Support program, individuals and their roommates (alongside their mentors) are responsible for planning their daily activities. This includes managing transportation, medical services and social engagements. Each participant has their own Communitas mentor for as many hours per week as necessary, as determined by DDS and our program through a regular assessment process.

Residents regularly engage in a variety of stimulating and therapeutic activities that build cognitive, physical and social skills. We teach core life skills and responsibilities, including money management, personal health, career support and community relationships.

Most are eligible for up to 15 hours of support weekly but some are eligible for more. Referrals to the program are available through DDS.
