Our Community Inclusion Programs
Everyone’s life should include lots of fun – Our goal is to help the people we support get into the community and experience all that life has to offer.
Our community inclusion services have our homes as their home base. All Centaine homes are active in providing appropriate leisure activities within the individual’s home as well as recreational and entertainment activities in the community. The individuals we support are included in the planning of activities and exercise their choice to participate.
