Adult Day Program

Program Director: Tondra Fleming, MSW, LSW

Who is served?


You are served if you are an adult with intellectual disabilities who is in need of day supports, but may not be ready or interested in full time vocational services or employment.

Individuals could be from age 18 and older because the program is dually licensed by the Department of Public Welfare's Office of Developmental Programs and the Office of Long Term Living.

Why is the service offered?

The Adult Day Program helps you learn skills so that you will be as independent as possible in your personal and social life.

What is the service?

  • You will meet with a professional staff and your team to develop a plan that establishes your goals and objectives for the year.
  • You will participate in a safe, comfortable, well supervised and supportive location.
  • You will be supported in increasing your everyday living skills, such as, social, leisure, academic, computer, fitness, horticulture and cooking skills.
  • You will participate in community activities, such as bowling, parks, movies, restaurants, shopping, museums and theater. By doing this, you will learn more skills and build positive relationships with people in the community.
  • You will participate in activities facilitated by staff to further develop your communication and social skills, so that you can develop new friendships, as well as improve your interpersonal skills.

  • If you do have an interest in doing some vocational work, you may work part-time in the Adult Day Program on contract work obtained by PATH’s Vocational Program, which includes such tasks as: hand assembly, sorting, packaging, and/or removing labels. If you work on contracts you will be paid for this work in keeping with Department of Labor standards.
