Compass – A Unique Day Support Program (21+)

Compass provides a unique day support program for young adults who are:

  • 21 years or older
  • Completed high school
  • Eligible for BHDDH

These young adults have entered adult services and want support to continue their transition to employment, increase their level of independence, and create a happy, healthy, satisfying adult life. Participants are supported by the RI Division of Developmental Disabilities (BHDDH) through individual self-directed support plans.

Compass self-directed services provide the participant and their family with assistance in designing, directing, and managing their support services. The Compass program includes:

  • Vocational skills
  • Life skills facilitators
  • Community activities
  • Interpersonal relationship development
  • Person-centered planning
  • Employment supports
