Narrative

The mission of CHAI Works Day Program is to create meaningful and fulfilling opportunities for individuals with disabilities to lead productive and integrated lives in their communities, and to increase feelings of self-worth and confidence. We do this through employment, volunteering, health & wellness, recreation, enrichment, and community experiences. We believe personal identity is enhanced through one’s achievements, and we strive to empower individuals through education and skill-building experiences.

Much of our programming takes place in the community and we maintain strong relationships with the employers our participants work for and the organizations in need of our volunteer support. We weave positive socialization interactions and opportunities with peers, staff, and the community into everything we do. Our successes are focused on having all of our activities based in an inclusive setting, meeting individualized participant goals, and providing enrichment programs that match our participants’ choices/interests.

Participants eligible for the CHAI Works Day Program are generally funded by the Department of Developmental Services or MCD although private pay options are available.
