PROGRAMS Supporting People With Disabilities
TURN supports people in residential settings that are customized to provide the exact level of services that the individual needs or desires. Group Homes serve 4-8 people with evening, morning and overnight staff (24/7) for those requiring intense medical or other specialized supports. Supervised Living serves 1-3 people, usually in apartments or small homes, and can also provide up to 24-hour supervision and supports. Those in Supported Community Living usually live in their own place and receive only specific, hourly supports. In all settings, supports can include activities of daily living, self-care and hygiene, medical needs management, community participation, socialization and leisure skills, personal funds management, and transportation.

Day Programs and Art Centers
TURN Day Programs, or community centers, provide a daily “home base” for people with developmental disabilities to learn and grow together. The centers serve individuals in a social / recreational setting and provide opportunities for group activities and community inclusion. Day service recipients may be individuals who are no longer able to work, are learning skills to prepare them for a work setting, or do not desire employment.
The goal of TURN Art Centers is to empower people with disabilities to express themselves in artistic ways, and to experience and learn art forms in which they have not participated in the past. Contact Us
