Day & Employment Services

Providing a path to self-exploration and growth for adults with disabilities.

Day Habilitation and Employment Services for people with developmental disabilities in Ashland, MA.

We place tremendous value on providing individuals with disabilities a multitude of opportunities to learn, grow, and participate in their communities. Through our Day and Employment Services at the Life Skills & Learning Center, Advocates staff partners with adults who have disabilities and their families to customize experiences and activities uniquely suited to each person’s interests, skills, needs, and goals.

Whether it’s by continuing education, improving overall health and wellness, giving back to the community, finding employment, or exploring new hobbies, Advocates’ Day and Employment Services encourages adults with disabilities on a lifetime path of self-exploration and development.

The Center houses fitness facilities, sensory rooms, vocational training spaces, and more. But we also bridge a connection to the community, partnering with libraries, arts groups, local businesses, and other organizations, for even more opportunities for individuals to lead active and fulfilling lives – on their own, or with family and friends.

Eligibility

Advocates Day & Employment Services are open to adults with disabilities age 18 and older. Services may be funded by Massachusetts state agencies including the Department of Developmental Services, Massachusetts Rehabilitation Commission, MassHealth, and others. Private pay opportunities are available. Please call our staff to discuss your needs.
