Community Connections has programs in both the District of Columbia and in Montgomery County, Maryland for families, children and youth.
District of Columbia: The Community Connections Child and Adolescent Services Program is child-centered, family-focused, and community based. Community Support Specialists meet the child/youth and family in their community locales, learn the values and perspectives of the family and joining with them in affirming skills, abilities, talents and hopes. Problems are recognized in context and addressed through collaborative partnerships with the families and their support networks. Children are seen as often as necessary to achieve their stated goals and objectives.
Maryland: Community Connections provides residential services for young adults who require a therapeutic environment to manage their psychiatric and emotional problems. A supported independent living apartment program with psychiatric rehabilitation (PRP) services serves youth in transition from ages 18-22. Residential programs vary in the length of stay; however, follow-up care and assistance in finding permanent housing is available to all participants in Maryland.
