Community Habilitation

New Hope Community’s Community Habilitation (Com Hab) program provides individualized support to people with intellectual and developmental disabilities (I/DD). This person-centered approach aims to develop skills, accomplish self-directed goals, achieve a higher level of independence, and provide opportunities for roles of social value within the community.

Direct Support Professionals work closely with the individual to create meaningful recreational and socialization opportunities, as well as life-skill learning opportunities.  This holistically fuels greater community inclusion, integration, and relationship building.

Select Human Services (SHS), a division of New Hope Community, is one of the largest providers of Community Habilitation in the Lower Hudson Valley Region.  SHS provides creative experiences and opportunities to forward each person’s level of independence and to support their realization of personal choices.
