Community Participation Services
It’s all about community at Crotched Mountain’s adult services. Staff pick up our participants at their homes and from then the day kicks into high gear: every day has a schedule, a game-plan reviewed and agreed on by staff, agencies, families, and, most importantly, the individuals themselves.
There’s no milling around. We’re in the community, working at a job, volunteering at an organization, or enjoying a leisure activity. We have a center in Greenfield where participants can enjoy lunch, camaraderie, maybe use the computer, and then it’s back into the community for the rest of the day.
All of our participants have one-to-one staff, meaning we have extraordinary flexibility. The daily schedule is as nimble as the individual wants it to be. For example, if a participant gets a job, the schedule can adapt to their new experience!
Crotched Mountain’s Community Participation Services focus on three core ingredients for an awesome community experience:
Learning life skills
From grocery shopping to budgeting to going to medical appointments, participants build up their independence, empowered to become their own, best advocates.
Our staff helps create authentic community experiences for our participants. Real relationships. Mutual support networks. Natural, organic friendships.
Hiking, swimming, biking, bowling, gymnastics, dancing, horseback riding—recreation opportunities are endless in New Hampshire and we ensure our participants can be as active as they wish! We work closely with Crotched Mountain Accessible Recreation and Sports to provide a varied, seasonal menu of adaptive activities.
