Community Participation Services (CPS) COVID update:
We are continuing to review ongoing guidance regarding in-person and on-site provision of services. Health & safety is at the forefront of our planning.
We recognize that some individuals will continue to prefer to engage remotely, via Zoom. We will continue to provide this programming and do not foresee ending it as a regular daily offering through the months to come.
We also recognize that some individuals need more than Zoom from us right now. We are working with those individuals and their circles of support (family, guardians, caregivers, etc) to meet those needs as safely and as soon as possible.
We are currently providing a spectrum of supports from full Zoom, to a mixture of Zoom, plus one-on-one or two-on-one excursions into the community once or twice a week. As the weather turns colder we will be looking at ways to safely incorporate vetted (by GBS and circles of support) indoor activities.
We are continuing to provide case management, employment supports and independent living services to our Maine members. We are assessing on a case-by-case basis, and taking steps to meet the individual needs of each of our clients.
Great Bay Services offers a wide selection of programs designed so every individual we serve can revel in each new skill they learn, each new activity they participate in, and each new opportunity to grow. Our goal is to promote increased awareness and skill levels in health, the arts, volunteerism, career development, technology, community participation, and other important life skills. We believe in the complete participation of people with intellectual disabilities in society, and are committed to growth and opportunity through mutual respect.
For six decades, we’ve supported individuals with intellectual disabilities, their families, and those who care for them. Having been founded by a group of caring parents, we’d like nothing better than to have the chance to work with your family.
We believe in lifelong learning and enrichment, and have developed fun, innovative community support programs to foster that ideal.
We help families navigate the Developmental Services system so your loved one can live a meaningful, self-directed life.
Our programs provide instruction
for individuals with intellectual disabilities in all aspects of finding, securing, and maintaining a job in the community.
