Empowering Individuals with Disabilities
Community Choices is a non-profit agency in Central New Hampshire serving people with disabilities, whether developmental or as the result of a brain injury. We believe communities are enriched when all individuals are empowered to contribute. We enable those with disabilities to remain in and be part of their local community. Our staff provides guidance, so individuals can make personal decisions about how they choose to live and work. Their families, guardians and others who support them are encouraged to provide input, so the individual’s life is as rich as possible.
We do this by finding opportunities, creating networks, and building relationships through person- centered planning. This draws on the person’s skills and life experiences, so they can remain in and contribute to the community.
We find unique and creative ways that people with disabilities can enrich the lives of others in their communities — through employment, companionship, or assistance to others.
We identify barriers that make remaining in the community difficult, and help our participants focus their strengths, interests, and abilities to overcome these barriers.
