To maintain the health and safety of our staff and the people we support during the Coronavirus outbreak, The Resource Center has initiated the following actions effective Wednesday, March 18, until further decisions are made:
- We are temporarily suspending services at our certified Day Habilitation Programs (located on Eighth Street, Harris Avenue and Jones & Gifford Avenue in Jamestown, and on Lake Shore Drive in Dunkirk), Day Habilitation Without Walls, and Community Pre-Vocational Services.
- Our Residential sites will not be allowing visitors.
- Community Habilitation and Self-Directed Services will be provided to people we support who reside in the community, to ensure they have needed supplies and services.
Thank you for your support and understanding as we continue to navigate through these uncertain times.
Mission Statement for The Resource Center’s Day Services
The mission of The Resource Center’s Day Services is to support people with developmental disabilities in living a happy and healthy life by providing opportunities to learn and maintain skills; to participate and develop relationships in the community; and to identify and attain their valued outcomes.
The Day Services Department of The Resource Center is comprised of Day Habilitation Programs at five locations in Chautauqua County. Day Habilitation is a compilation of supports and services, outlined in a Day Habilitation Plan, to help individuals develop and attain life goals that they have identified as meaningful and desirable to them. Staff support is provided to assist individuals with daily life activities, skill development, and in achieving satisfying and rewarding connections and relationships
within their communities.
Admission Criteria/Eligibility Requirements
An individual can be admitted to the Day Habilitation program if he/she is age eighteen or over and has a developmental disability with a diagnosis of intellectual/developmental disability, autism, cerebral palsy, epilepsy, or neurological impairment, and possesses a deficit in adaptive behavior. Each individual must also have the capacity to participate in planned activities at a site other than his/her residence. Only individuals whose functional, developmental, and nursing needs can be met by the program will be admitted. Individuals must be enrolled or eligible for enrollment in the Home and Community Based Services Waiver program. Preference will be given to residents of Chautauqua County.
