Community Habilitation & Respite for People with Disabilities

AIM Provides a variety of Community Habilitation (Com Hab) and Respite Services. Please read below regarding these programs and to explore if you or your loved one are eligible.

Community Habilitation

Community Habilitation services are goal-driven and meant to enhance independence by strengthening skills based on personal interests and unique needs, while encouraging involvement in the community. Support is typically provided one-on-one but can also be delivered in group settings. Com Hab is designed to be more individualized and can be provided in addition to or as an alternative to the group-based setting of Day Habilitation.
