Community Support Program
The Catholic Charities' Community Support Program is funded by the Connecticut Department of Mental Health and Addiction Services and is contracted to provide skill building and life skill services to adults with psychiatric disabilities in the greater Danbury area. The program's services are trauma sensitive and culturally competent. The program teaches, coaches, and educates clients in the community, and provides support and advocacy on behalf of the client when needs change or are not being met.
Some of the services and resources obtained include skill building, social integration into the community, entitlements, disability benefits, housing, clinical connections, medical treatment, substance abuse treatment, employment support, education, and rehabilitation services.
The Community Support Program works with clients face-to-face in the community and in their homes. Individualized recovery plans are formulated by the clients themselves, and include elements like goal setting, personal empowerment, socialization, and independent living skills, with a focus on quality of life. Clients self-determine their care in the program and are active participants. They build relationships with natural supports, family, friends, and in the community. Clients reach personal goals and benchmarks of learning through practice and support, and are encouraged to "graduate" from the program with sustained life skills.
