About Community Connections

Community Connections is a Catholic Charities day program for adults with developmental and intellectual disabilities. We’re located in Janesville, serving the greater Rock County area.

Goals of Our Program

The main goal of Community Connections is community integration.  This allows all Participants to be able to access their communities and be a part of their surroundings.  Outings are geared towards the likes and dislikes as well as the needs of each Participant.  Outings are meaningful in nature and provide unique experiences that Participants may not otherwise experience.

Alternate from outings, Community Connections also provides meaningful in house activities.  Each day, a Participant will be involved in crafts, cooking projects, diversity activities, independence learning skills etc.  These are only a few among many of the daily activities Participants are involved in.  Activities are also geared to the Participant’s likes and dislikes as well as each individual need. Staff work in teams with their peers to makes sure all Participants have a great day.
