Building Community Relationships

At Ervin Community Supports we engage with the community every day. Our program promotes independence and helps build life skills for adults with intellectual disabilities.

We meet people and build healthy relationships by regularly going out into the community. Together we:Adults with intellectual disabilities play Bocce

  • Picnic at the beach
  • Shop at local stores
  • Attend Camp Tall Pines
  • Visit Museums
  • Cheer at the Sea Dogs game

We know that volunteerism builds strong community connections, so we take every opportunity to volunteer from helping out at the local library, to serving at the community luncheon to gathering donations for the Humane Society.

Our Special Olympics team competes in the summer games, winter games and the yearly basketball tournament.

Our flexible schedule with evening and weekend options makes it easier for participants to attend community events. We offer a $100 credit* to help full-time attendees pay for off-site activities. (*prorated for part-time attendance)
