Building Life Skills through
Group Community Living Supports
Progress. Made possible.
MOKA’s Group Community Living Supports Program provides support for adults (18 years and older) with intellectual and developmental disabilities in Muskegon, Ottawa and Kent Counties. The program is a perfect fit for those that desire increased independence through their person-centered planning goals in the context of group activities.
Group Community Living Supports is designed to assist people in meeting their specific goals of community inclusion, independence and productivity. The program focuses on building relationships, improving interactions, and developing life skills; helping each person become more involved, and integrated into their community. Experiences offered in the program include volunteering and participation in regular community activities in order to support full inclusion in the community.
Those enrolled in the program will participate in hands-on learning experiences, within a small group, supported by a mentor. Each person will learn transportation training, relationship building, health and wellness, and daily living skills with a goal of reaching the highest level of independence through active hands-on learning experiences. Most of the program time is spent in neighborhoods, parks, libraries, businesses, and local venues. Each person will enjoy activities such as art and music, health and wellness, fitness, cooking, meal planning, transportation, safety, diet, and healthy living, gardening and outdoor fun, tours, events, and volunteering. The people in this group benefit from the smaller size, supported by a well-trained and caring mentor to support in navigating life while preparing for the next stages.
