Community Connections opens in Plymouth Industrial Park
The Patriot Ledger - 8/13/2019
PLYMOUTH - Community Connections officially opened its doors with a ribbon-cutting ceremony last week during a Morning Mixer with the Plymouth Area Chamber of Commerce. Members got to tour the facility and meet some of the people with disabilities, served by the nonprofit agency in the Plymouth Industrial Park.
The facility boasts several program rooms for therapy, exercise and education. Along with customized therapy and habilitation programs, Community Connections provides life-enriching services that promote optimal independence for people with disabilities. The goal is to support each person to reach their potential through goal-driven services and community partnerships.
Community Connections offers day habilitation and life skills at its Plymouth location. In day habilitation, participants learn social skills, cooking and nutrition, personal care, daily living, health and fitness and computer skills, as well as participating in community activities.
In life skills, they are taught safety skills, meal planning, budgeting, shopping, cooking and nutrition, as well as learning computer and internet safety skills. In both programs, participants receive full-time nursing, as well as physical, speech, behavioral and occupational therapy.
Staff and program participants engage in many activities in the community, including food drives and recycling. The recent addition of art therapy to the program has grown to include a photography club.
In addition to Plymouth, Community Connections has locations in Fall River, Fairhaven, Wareham, Mashpee and South Yarmouth. Program manager in Plymouth is Kit George, who can be reached at email@example.com or 508-747-0451.
The facility is located at 23 Resnik Road in Plymouth. For more information about this location, visit https://www.communityconnectionsinc.org/locations/plymouth-location/.
