Community-Based Day Services Program

Day Services for Adults with Disabilities

Our Community-Based Day Services program is devoted to helping adults with disabilities gain independence and build meaningful relationships within the community. Designed to create opportunities that foster personal growth, our day program offers the tools to live a life filled with valuable connections and engaging experiences.

Our Community-Based Day Services are highly personalized and dedicated to the individual goals, skills, and interests of your loved one. Everyone has their own timeline, so there is no set deadline for completion of this program. Through building self-reliance, developing customized skills, and getting involved in the community, we are by our clients’ side every step of the way!

The Building Full Lives Philosophy

As a member of the Wisconsin Board for People with Developmental Disabilities’ “Building Full Lives” initiative, Covey is committed to applying this philosophy to our Community-Based Day Services program. The goals of this initiative are to help people with disabilities safely meet new people, explore their interests, and get connected to the community. Covey is here to help your loved one achieve those goals!

Gaining Independence & Achieving Goals

With the help of Covey’s Community Based Day Services Program, Aaron M. accomplished his goal of time management and planning his weekly schedule. He effectively planned his next week’s activities by writing them in his calendar, and has even discovered new passions to explore!

“You truly don’t know how much Covey means to us! Aaron has been coming home each day with a smile from ear to ear.” —Kathryn, Aaron’s mother
