Community Integration Services
The Paths to Community
At PathPoint, we believe that all individuals, regardless of their developmental disability, physical challenges, or concurrent medical conditions, need stimulating activities and social interaction in a meaningful environment.
Community Integration Programs provide day programming for individuals with moderate to severe physical and developmental disabilities who generally reside at home, in long-term care facilities, or in intermediate care facilities.
We offer programs, services and facilities that support community integration and learning in a sanitary, well-maintained, healthy, and stimulating environment.
Activities are designed to maintain a high quality of life while encouraging maximum social, intellectual, and physical capabilities. Our services provide the support necessary to allow people with special needs to live with dignity and self-confidence in their community and enjoy their lives.
Community Access Programs also provide vocational training, work-readiness assistance, and community access skills. Participants may receive part-time paid vocational training at a variety of community employment sites. The portion of the day not devoted to vocational training is dedicated to community access and social survival skills: banking, budgeting, public transportation, safety and recreational planning.
Dianne has been coming to PathPoint in the Antelope Valley since July 2013, and has been learning office skills in the front office. When she first started training, she was nervous and reluctant to answer phones, but with encouragement and training from staff, she now looks forward to assisting everyone. She also earns income working on piecework for Farmers Insurance and is awaiting background clearance to volunteer at the courthouse in Palmdale.
Dianne's daughter, Christy, also comes to PathPoint's ACCESS program, and volunteers at the Lancaster Courthouse three days a week.
“I have seen a difference in my daughter's attitude and her excitement when she returns from her day at court. She is meeting new people and enjoys the new training she is receiving. We have been so happy here at PathPoint in Lancaster and we are very satisfied with the services provided. We enjoy all of the staff and feel very comfortable with their assistance and training they provide us.”
