Community Connections is a center that provides adults with developmental disabilities or traumatic brain injury the opportunity for daily community integration and meaningful activity, both in the community and at the program facility.

We promote the diverse, unique abilities and interests of each participant. Consumer independence and choice are emphasized whenever possible. The center is open from 8:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m., Monday through Friday. Clients are assessed for admission following a recommendation by their case manager.

The building was custom-designed with our clients and their needs in mind. All of the rooms are painted with warm colors, and are open and inviting. We have ample space, a large kitchen, and four ADA-approved wheelchair accessible bathrooms. The Wisconsin Room, River Room and Cafe are our three great rooms where most in-house activities take place. They are furnished with comfortable, accessible seating and dining furniture so that we can be cozy in whatever activity we're doing.

Our staff is committed to providing the participants with quality care in a respectful and safe environment. Knowledge and compassion are combined to provide individualized supervision and training to those who attend the program.
