Achievement. Made possible.
MOKA’s Community Supports Program is designed to serve adults (18 years and older) with intellectual and developmental disabilities, that desire a way to explore increased independence and inclusion through social engagement within community settings. The Community Supports Program includes working with individuals on building skills through group community-based activities as well as those skills to achieve or retain a job. Each program offered supports people to lead meaningful lives by gaining greater independence to their communities at their own pace. Services are provided in Muskegon, Ottawa and Kent Counties through a person-centered planning process that is completed collaboratively with the person’s support team.
MOKA believes there are endless possibilities when you support people to make choices, develop skills, build relationships and contribute to their communities. We strive to help people progress; so that they can do the things they are interested in within their community, with as minimal support as possible. MOKA will help people to learn to safely ride the bus, walk to places they want to get to, or even access other community transportation options. We help people identify available activities that they enjoy and to learn to access those activities independently or with a peer. Through teaching people to access volunteer opportunities, they learn that their time and service are valuable and can transition these skills to personal or work settings. We also help prepare people for employment by teaching work-related skills such as task completion, problem-solving and resume building. We support each person to have a greater awareness of their communities and their resources so that they can gain independence to fully participate and become active members of their community.
