A range of options is offered to allow individuals to access programs that will help meet personal goals. Options include:

Community Participation Supports

That help individuals join community-based recreational activities based on interests and goals.

Life Skills Supports

That will help individuals create, achieve and maintain independent life goals

Community Employment/ Volunteer Supports

That will help individuals develop job skills, find employment and volunteer opportunities

Skill Training Area at Crescent Centre

Skills Training Area (STA) is a small program inside the Crescent Centre. The STA program is designed for people requiring additional support measures or environmental modifications to best meet their behavioural or sensory needs. This program is very individualized, and takes a less structured approach than traditional day programs. This program focuses on community participation through volunteering, community events, and social-recreational activities.
